My LO is 11 months old. We cosleep and I work full time and pump. DH takes care of her during the day. She's always nursed or 'dream fed' at night, but lately it seems like she's nursing all night. Any time I try to take her off the breast she'll root around for it then wake up if she can't find it. This morning I wanted to snuggle w/ DH for a bit before getting up. She literally nursed for 45 minutes, if I tried to get her off she'd fuss. This was around 4 am, about an hour before my normal waking time. She got up with me at 5 as usual, then went down at 6~ish no problems and I was able to get her off the breast to leave for work.
I Love co sleeping and am not willing to try the CIO mehtod or having her sleep in another bed. She won't take a pacifier, if I try she'll spit it out or grab it out of her mouth and throw it!
I'm just looking for any ideas on getting her to stay asleep with out keeping her latched on all night!
