Does she take a paci? If not I would really look into getting one. If she goes down at 8 and gets up to eat around 1 feed her, then try putting her off with a paci the next time she gets up. You may have to get up and give it to her 3 or 4 times but if it calms her down then she is ready to sleep through the night and is getting up out of habit and not because she is hungry. If she doesn't calm down with the paci then she is hungry and unfortunately not ready to sleep through the night Some abies are not ready until they are a year old. Creighton goes down between 7:30 and 8, then he gets up between 1-2 and eats, then he sometimes sleeps until 5 am and sometimes until 7-8. It is exhausting some days but I remind myself that he does have a tiny stomach and breast milk goes through their systems fairly quickly, and if I were hungry and unable to feed myself I would not want to be hungry while trying to go back to sleep
