Re: nursing aaaaaaaaaaall night long!

This causes way less disruption for everone and everybody's loving it. The only thing is, usually we both just fall back to sleep while he is latched on so that he spends more time latched on than not ..this doesn't bother me at all, i find nursing all night much less disruptive than getting up once or twice, but my question is, is it okay for him? i can't think of any reason why i wouldn't be, i just thought i'd ask some more experienced mamas to make sure. I don't want to ask my pediatrician, as bedsharing is officially bad.
I did this for months with my son and it worked out awesome for both of us and my husband. The only thing that backfired was the sadness that ensued when we finally put him in his own bed in his own room. That killed me.
