Question Co-Sleeping... when to stop??

My Daughter is 10 1/2 months old and has pretty much slept with us since she was 6 months old! She's always slept in our room, but around 6 months, she started waking continuouslythrough the night & would only sleep well if she was with me. We were very open to co-sleeping, & still love having her right there with us. We've always put her down in her crib (after she's asleep), then she usually wakes between 10 & 11 screaming her head off until we put her in bed with us. Once she's with us, she grabs my hair or my shirt, cuddles up w/ me and goes right to sleep. We know eventually she needs to be in her own bed- for her, & for us, but now we aren't sure what to do. She is stubborn and will scream for 30 minutes if we let her. Nap time is the same story!
Just looking for input on what other parents have done...

Thanks!
