Q&A: Baby Still Not Sleeping Through the Night?

At nine months, my breastfed baby is still waking up to eat about every four hours. Is this normal? Will she ever sleep through the night?

This is definitely in the normal range for this age. And yes, all babies eventually outgrow the need to wake at night. Just like walking, talking, and learning to use the toilet, each baby reaches this developmental milestone at her own pace.
