My daughter is still awaking at nights for feeding at age 9 months how do i break her from this?

ask the pediatrician if her daily meals/food intake are meeting her needs for not just her age, but more importantly her weight and height. My daughter was going through that until age one. Turns out she was just always hungry. She was my first, so I thought that following guidelines for age was sufficient.

my son is almost 11 months and 2 nights ago was the first time he has not woken up for a feed in the middle of the night since he was born!!! he slept through the night again last night, so hopefully it is going to continue!!! i know not everyone agrees with me, but i would say continue feeding her. my oldest son starting at 6 months would just take water if he woke up in the middle of the night as his bottle was more of a security than a need for food. my youngest is not like that, he would drink his water and then cry b/c he was still hungry.

but good luck with whatever you decide!!! : )

Do you use a pacifier? Try and use it to soothe her if not then maybe use water instead of formula. My lil man just went through it too. He would cry when I gave him his pacifier so I gave water then pacifier now he just uses the pacifier and does not eat at night time. He still wakes up in the middle of the night I just don't give him anything to eat or drink... its really not good for their teeth if they have any it. Good Luck the crying part is hard but they only cry to a few minutes then realize they'll take what they can get.. lol
