My daughter will be 1yr in a week and still wakes up throughout the night, sometimes multiple times. I'm 31 and a first time mom, any suggestions?

It is normal for kids to be up and down until about 2 years old. They still have needs to be met at this age and this is the way they do this. A lot of parents expect that their baby will sleep through the night by age one and they do not stop to think that the child is still developing.

She's normal. Some babies sleep through rather young... some don't for years. Is she waking to nurse (or have a bottle if you don't nurse)? My son woke 1-5 times/night until he was 2 and he was able to be easily night weaned (a process I started at a year and a half) w/out any stress or tears.
