I am composing multiple nodes together using a ComposableNodeContainer in the launch file. None of the RCLCPP_INFO messages appear until the program closes. RCLCPP_ERROR prints normally.

I guess you're noticing this behavior due to line buffering. Try setting the environment variable RCUTILS_CONSOLE_STDOUT_LINE_BUFFERED=1.

Note, the default behavior was changed recently so that all log messages are flushed right away (so you shouldn't experience the same issue with ROS 2 Foxy or later). Related PR:
