My lo is 9 months old. He goes to bed at 8pm. He sleeps well and wakes up at 5am to nurse. Then goes back to sleep till 7 or 8am. I was wondering how long your lo's sleep. I have tried not feeding him but then he just screams. When I put him down again he is awake and falls back to sleep on his own. It is also a good nursing session because during the day he seems to busy to really nurse and at nap time to tired. I only nurse in his room with the lights out or he wouldn't nurse at all. He is only nursing 3 maybe 4 times a day. I have tried to increase this but But you can lead him to milk you just can't make him drink. So I guess what I wondering is ....is this sleeping through the night?

Yes! I think that is very good. My ds is also 9 months but formula-fed. He gets 3 bottles a day because that is all he will take. He goes to bed between 6:30-7pm and is usually awake between 6-6:30am (So, about 11-11.5 hrs) . Over the last 2 days I've noticed that he is VERY grumpy in the morning and tired after only a hr....so this morning when he woke at 6am I feed him his bottle in the dark and put him down again. He slept till 8am. That was a shocker! Your lo is sleeping 9hrs straight and technically "sleeping through" is anything after 6hrs without a feed. How much does he drink at 5am? is it enough to make you think its genuine hunger?

He eats the most at bedtime and at 5. Throughout the day he just nibbles.
