I can share my experience.

For the first entire year my DS had to be latched on for all naps and all.night.long. Then from a year-18 months he could be unlatched but his face had to be touching my breast. 18m-2y I could actually roll over but he needed to be within arms reach of feeling my skin. During that time he nursed about every 2 hours at night. Now, he's 3 and I can nurse him down and get out of bed for hours. He nurses about 2x a night. There is hope, it WILL get better. I promise. And those extra calories at night are definitely beneficial to her. It doesn't seem like she's ready to wean and if you tough it out a bit longer I think it'll become more enjoyable (with more sleeping) for you.
