I am nursing both DS and DD but DS has not been interested in night nursing.  We cosleep and from left to right it is DD, me, DH, and then DS.  DS has really dropped his nursing down to nap time and bed time.  I am a little sentimental about it but wanted to only decrease nursing when he chose to which is what has happened.  I still have to sit up or get out of bed to nurse DD at night because with side lying I cannot seem to get a good latch.  DS also wakes up if DD is too fidgety or loud so I go out to our living room.  I am pretty sure it will all get a lot easier in the next couple of weeks when I can just nurse lying down.  DS will snuggle in between me and DH but I never have DS and DD together because she is so small and he is an active sleeper.  It is wearing but I just remind myself this is a short time and sleep is only so precious :)
