Yes totally normal for the first 7-9 months at least. A baby's tummy is only the size of his fist, and he is growing so fast he uses it up quickly.

Of course it's normal. My 8 month old wakes up once or twice (in "my" night) for a nursing session. My oldest was over one before she stopped waking to eat. She's 3 now and still wakes and calls for us once a night most nights. It does get easier though! :)

My son nursed throughout the night (every 3 hours) until he was a year old. Some babies are hungry others do it out of habbit. Its NORMAL at your babies age to be waking every 2.5-3 hours...especially during growth spurts (6weeks, 9 weeks, 12weeks)

Uh at two months?! Of course it's normal! My daughter is 9 months and still wakes up during the night.

My daughter used to wake up twice a night until she was about four months then she woke up once a night every night until she was 18months. She only started sleeping through once I has stopped breastfeeding( long story has nothing to do with the b/f). Babies are supposed to wake up for feeds it in there make up for survival

My son is 10 weeks old and still wakes about every 3 hours at night. He has occasionally slept a solid 4 or 4.5 hours, but most nights he's still up every three.

My first did not sleep more than 3 hours until he was 5 months old. My 2nd slept 4-5 hours from birth and was sleeping 8 hours by about 4 months old. All three were breastfed.

My girls were waking twice a night (12 hour night) at that age. At 3 months they were waking once. At 6 months they were sleeping through... for a month. From 7-14 months they were up once or twice a night. Then they started sleeping through again.

My son pretty much didn't sleep longer than a 4 hour stretch (w/ a few exceptions) til a year and a half and only slept all the way through (10-11 hours) a half a dozenish random times until he turned 2.

Both of my experiences are perfectly normal. As are many different variations.
