I'm just curious to hear from other breastfeeding and/or co-sleeping moms, when did your kid or kids sleep through the night? And did you do anything to encourage it or did they do it on their own?
My son is 10 months old and has never even gotten close to sleeping through the night. He sleeps in his own crib for a while then I move him to our bed between midnight-4 am. I'm just curious because there are definitely days I'm exhausted and feel like, "He's never going to sleep through the night! I'm going to be tired forever!" Of course, I know this isn't true, but I really want a realistic idea of when it might happen.
I also know another breastfeeding mom who said that by 12 months her kids only wanted to nurse once a night. But my son still nurses 3-4 times a night and shows no signs of slowing down. Will the time come when I have to teach him not to nurse at night? Did you kids stop on their own or did you wean them from night feedings?
