My 5 month old EBF DD has been sleeping through the night since 3.5 months. She goes down for bed at 8 and will sleep until about 7. BUT I "dream feed" nurse her while she is asleep at 10:30pm and 5am. Try doing a dream feed.
A good mommy is a mommy with some sleep. Can you have someone watch her for a little while in the morning. You can pump out some bottles and have you SO or mom or someone feed it to her while you sleep. This is what I do sometimes when its really needed
I feed my daughter before I go to bed and when I wake up. I think the dream feeds push her to sleep longer with out interuppting my sleep.

I just wanted to say, I too am obsessed with my baby still nursing at night & not sleeping thru the night, she's 8 months old. It's been SO stressful. I feel like I have set her up with bad sleep issues (mommy always blames ourselves right!?) anyway, us moms have to lean on each other even if we don't know each other. Hang in there, babies are all different. I struggle with giving my baby what she's asking for (night nursing) and trying to get her to put herself to sleep. Been a real struggle. Your LO is young too, good luck.
