    Anyone with same problem?
    I have more of an issue with getting my little one to sleep during the day - she won't nap and gets more and more tired (and cranky!!) as the day goes on. I have found this book quite helpful though, which talks about sleep routines and settling, but you may have already read it, as I noticed you mention dreamfeeding.

    My DD is nearly 11 months and we have only just stopped feeding overnight! She wakes up once or twice but shushing tends to get her back down now that she isn't expecting a feed. She goes 7pm-7am. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

    My 2.5 year old still wakes a couple of times a night, my eldest woke at night every night until 3 and then more like a couple of times a week until 4. He's 5.5 and sleeps through every night now.

    I think the whole "6 month olds sleep through the night" thing, is like "Some 6 month olds can sleep through the night". Like "some 9 month olds can walk". It's a developmental milestone that children reach at different stages.

    Good luck though! hopefully it wont be too long! By saying it's normal and natural I don't at all mean to say it's easy - I can completely, totally and utterly relate to the crapness of broken sleep. Hopefully something can work for you.

    Same in this house. My six month old boy wakes for feeds every three hours throughout the night. Some nights we get lucky and he'll sleep 5 straight!

    My 8yo DS still wakes in the night, he didn't sleep through till he was nearly 5yo and now thankfully it's only a few nights a week he's up.

    DD at 4 thankfully doesn't but didn't sleep through the night till at least 8 mths old.
