co-sleeping/breastfeeding ?

For those that co-sleep and breast feed, when did your lo stop nursing during the night? Katie is 16 months old and still nurses about 4 times a night. When I m asleep, it doesnt bother me at all, I barely notice, but it is in the between time when she goes to sleep and I go to sleep that makes me crazy. she will nurse to sleep, then wake again within an hour and wants to nurse again. She also nurses for like 30 minutes! If it was 5 minutes, I wouldnt care, but 30, geez. I tried givning her a binki, but that really made her mad. She is nursing about 5 times during the day, nt including nursing down for nap or bed at night.

It depends on growth spurts and all, but we usually have nursing around 12am, 2 or 3, 5, 6 and 8am. sometimes there is a 4am feeding too. During the day we nurse around 10, 12, 2, 4, 5 or 6 (sometimes both) and 7. He falls asleep and sometimes wakes to eat around 9 or 10.

he's four months old.

Henry still nurses every 1-2 hours throughout the night, and he's 20 months old. He never nurses for very long, though - just a sip and I will roll over. Its just a comfort thing with him at this point, wanting to know its still there.
