I am in the same boat as you, so I don't have a lot of advice, but I feel your pain! My babe is 9 months and probably wakes to feed 8-10 times a night, at least. We co-sleep, so I don't really wake up enough to count every single time, but it's often uncomfortable and very restless, especially by the time 4 or 5 AM rolls around.
I am thinking of putting her in her crib at the first of the night, and then when she wakes the first time after I've gone to bed, she can come in with me. Then at least we'd both get "alone" sleep for awhile. Also maybe the "alone" sleep may last longer & longer, I am hoping. We don't do "cry it out" but in the long run, I don't believe there will be a need. I have been really desperate, but I don't want her to distrust me because of that.
I know at the 9-month period, and anytime they're going through a lot of new milestones and/or teething, they'll suddenly sleep restlessly. Lately my babe will breastfeed while sleeping & laying on her side, turn on her tummy while feeding, and then wake up & grin like she just did a magic trick! I think it's just a matter of getting through the phase. I'm holding out hope!!!
