Re: Is Sleep Training possible (or necessary) with EBF baby?
What you describe sounds absolutely normal for an 8 month old. Both my kids woke at least that much, and my first daughter woke quite a bit more. Think 6-8 night-wakings until around 10 months! Frequent night-waking can be caused by the new milestones he's mastering (crawling, sitting, starting to pull up to a stand, chewing, etc.), and by teething, and by ear infections, and by growth spurts, and also by habit. The reason I like the "No-Cry" book is that it doesn't offer you a guaranteed solution to night-waking, and that is honest. Any book that claims to have a sleep intervention that works for EVERY baby is selling you a pig in a poke.
