Is it normal that my 8-month-old wakes up so much at night?

My daughter is going to be 8 months this month and she is still waking up every 3-4 hours to eat. Any advice???


My 11 month old still wakes up multiple times, even my almost 5 yearold will still wake during the night. Its normal for infants/children to wake during the night even as an adult I still wake up during the night lol

It’s biologically normal for them to wake up often. So yes, it’s normal.

My almost 3 year old still wakes up throughout the night. It depends on the child.
my daughter is autistic and I’m sure that plays a part.

Completely normal. Having a relaxing bath and snack before bed sometimes gets them to sleep a bit longer. Every baby is different though

That sounds normal. 3-4h is a good stretch.

Normal. And may he teething also.

My son definitely was … he’s just over a year now and it’s about one or two times a night for a bottle. I started giving him a little water right
Before bed too, maybe that can help.

My son didn’t sleep through the night until was 3 and half.

My now almost 3 year old was sleeping through the night around 7 months. My 10 month old gets up every 2-3 hours still. My now 9 year old was up every 2-3 hours as well until he was 18’ish months. Every child/baby is different :heart:

My two year old is still up 4 times a night

Baby’s have periods of sleep regressions especially if it’s during a period with a lot of motor growth/milestone growth. Very common to have a sleep regression period at 6 months and 8-9 months.

My 2 year old was like that. I started replacing every second bottle with water instead of milk. The first 3 nights were hell but by the end of the week I found she was starting to sleep through her water bottle wakes.( do sleeping 5-6 hours at a time) after about a week of that I only gave her a bottle of milk to put her down and all water the rest of the remaining wakes. Now we are 4 months in and she doesn’t have any milk to go to bed or through the night. She sleeps through

My son did this until I started having him go to bed later.

My 10 month old still wakes every 1-2 hours. Every baby is different. My oldest slept through the night since he was 4 months old :woman_shrugging:t3: we’ll never sleep again it’s okay

Nope… try water in bottle/cup… at 8 months if she is eating ppl (completely solids) she should last thru the night…


My son is the same and he’s 9 months

feed her 3-5 meals in her day. try to introduce real foods, sounds like she’s got a good appetite

I think it’s different for all children. All my children slept through the night by 6 months old though

It depends on the kid to be honest. Try giving a nice warm bath and then massage with some lavender cream, story and bed.

Very normal. It’s normal for quite a while longer

Are you feeding the baby solid food? Baby Cereal with some fruit or something in it and a smaller amount of milk keeps thier tummy full longer

Should be having solids by now. She’s probably hungry.


All children are different. I know it’s tiring but Don’t compare your child to whatever other parents say their baby is doing

My son was up every two hours around the clock to nurse until he was 9 months old. He didn’t actually sleep through the night until he was 2. Two of my 3 girls slept anywhere from 4-5 hours at night, the youngest girl woke up every 2-3 hours every night. Every baby is different

I’ve had my great niece since she was 4 months old. From 4 months to 11 months this child woke up every hour to every hour an a half. I was so exhausted everyday.

It’s her normal routine so why wouldn’t she
