Re: 5 month old STILL nursing all night
My LO was about like this, and now at 15mo she still wakes up in the night. Now, though, that first stretch of sleep is usually around 2 hrs, so I'm able to get back up out of bed and get a few more things done. (And this morning I even managed to get up before she did and fix breakfast before she woke! )
They do start growing out of it, it just takes longer than society wants us to think it "should"....
