wondering if its normal for a 15mths old breastfed baby still not sleeping through the night? my girl just turns 15mths but she is still not sleeping through the night... (my definition means totally not waking up for milk feed till she wakes up in the morning eg 9pm-9am).
since about 5.5mths or so, she started sleeping through the 'night' and waking up only at 5.30-6.30am but till now.. its been the same. she goes to bed at 9.30pm.. so far she did twice not waking up till hubby goes to work in the morning at 7.30-8am. or even if she does wakes up in the middle of the night, she dosent ask for milk.. she will only ask for milk around 5.30-6.30am which i wonder if she is really hungry or just a habit.. anyone has baby of this age still waking up for milk? i tried to let her cry, sometimes she does go back to sleep but sometimes she start screaming and crying very hard till its so hard to calm her down except with my boobs...i wonder when i can get a full night sleep...

Try make the baby tired out before going to sleep at night? Play with baby until super tired. Before sleeping, feed slightly more milk formula so that baby won't be too hungry in the middle of the night.
Maybe you can try shorten the afternoon nap time and adjust the bedtime till 10pm. Also not forgetting to give at least 5 - 6oz of milk before bedtime, this will ease the hunger during the night.
