It's not uncommon for parents to look forward to that one moment. That moment your kid decides to sleep through the whole night. Finally! Nevertheless you'll still wake up a few times that night. Just because you are used to.
I have read this a few times, and the one linked to this post (find it in the bio) explains it again. Sleeping through the night is a matter of definition. As a parent you consider a good night's sleep as at least 8 hours of rest. But for your baby it's a mere 5 hours. So putting your baby to sleep at 7 in the evening, it will wake up around midnight. And yes. Again at 5 in the morning. The brutal truth is that your kid shouldn't be sleeping through until they go to school!
The reason your kid will probably wake up a few times at night, is because it wants to be fed. According to the World Health Organization @who, babies should drink breastmilk up to 2 years old. And feeding during the night is still important in this period. It will help with their growth and development.

Scientific studies rarely take our side. But that doesn't change the reason why your wife, the mother of your children, is awake every night. Besides the midnight feedings, or throw ups, the multiple nature calls, or just your snoring throughout the night. Your spouse is just worrying about the family. Again.
