That's pretty normal @Ecky Dee. My ds slept on me for day naps for the first 6 months. I think he started having a longer stretch of 4-6 hours overnight from about 3-4 months. He still wakes a couple of times now at 19 months.

Babies sleep when they are ready. Some earlier than others. Some wake 2-3x a night for feeds till 14-15mths. All normal child behaviour. Both my girls were like that. But their day naps were fabulous from 6mths ish when they started crawling.

Sleeping Like A Baby
My DD was 10 months when she started sleeping through, DS will be 1 at the end of the month and he still wakes at night. Most recently it's been 3/4 times a night but last night only once.
Some 2 and 3 year olds still don't sleep through.
I know it's really tough, but please try not to have any expectations on when it will happen. Don't base those expectations on what other babies are doing on here or IRL or what a book or website tells you. As the saying goes it's only a problem if it's a problem.
So until it's a problem for you (effecting your mental and or physical health perhaps), night wakings and feeds are very normal and very healthy!
I know how awful it is surviving on limited sleep. If it helps - we have ALL been there!

I'm so glad that I've found this thread! DS thinks sleep is overrated, and would much rather be socialising. I've never been able to teach him to self settle despite following all the advice (except for CIO - it is not for me). I'm still patting him to sleep, still getting up to him a minimum of 4 times a night, and struggling with naps. Most nights he'll have at least 1 waking where he is awake for an hour to an hour and a half. I can't nap during the day, so I've been getting by on 3-6 hours a night for the last 3 months. It's definitely had an effect on my mental health - I've recently been diagnosed with PND. Most of the anxiety I have relates to DS's sleep. I feel like I've tried everything, and now have to learn other ways to cope!

Sleeping Like A Baby
I have two terrible sleepers who are almost 5 and almost 2. They both wake several times a night and need resettling physical (cuddle or pat on the bum). Neither of them will go to bed with out me at night and both still sleep with me. I find this works for me because it saves me having to get out of bed up to twenty times a night. It's still highly stressful and has gotten so out of hand lately that I'm barely managing an hour a night of full unbroken sleep. I'm exhausted and unable to concentrate properly which is affecting my every day life even as a SAHM. Driving has become near impossible and I've had a few near misses lately (usually not noticing when the person in front has put their foot on the brake!). I'm just taking it one day at a time and hoping it ends soon. Though my cousin has a 12 year old DD that still wakes so I don't have high hopes 😒 I love them to bits but I honestly need a break. My anxiety and depression is out of control and I've lost 25kgs in the past 4 months (not that that's a bad thing for me haha). I left their DV Dad 4 months ago in the hopes that they'd improve with their sleep it hasn't helped in that area though they are much happier during the day though still a bit whiny and sooky probably due to their lack of sleep.

I may actually have a child that sleeps. Yes it's too early to boast but I'm going to do it anyway.
Dd3 is 7wks old. She is now sleeping 8-10hrs straight then quick feed and back for 2-4hrs. So from 7-7 she wakes once for a feed.
Daytime she naps 2hrs in the morning, 2-3hrs in the afternoon and a cat nap in the arvo.
After all its all to do with parenting right ???
