I know it's hard to hear comments like these from others. DD2 is 7.5 months and wakes, usually, 5x's each night to nurse. My mom has started to tell me I need to "get her sleeping longer." She hasn't offered her opinions on how to make this happen, but I know in the back of her mind she wants me to let her cry.
DH's mom & one of his co-workers keep telling him "a little bit of formula at night will make her sleep longer." 1) Not true 2) Their thinking is that it will keep her fuller longer. She has purees right before bed and that's not keeping her fuller & sleeping longer so why would formula?
Sorry, I got sidetracked...Basically, I just wanted to let you know your LO sounds perfectly "normal" to me and you're doing just fine!
