I'd suggest putting her in the crib at the start of the night, and if she wakes up during the night, after you're already in bed, keep her in bed with you the rest of the night. This way she's in the crib for at least part of the night and she'll spend more time in there the nights she needs less milk, but you're not constantly going up and down on the nights when she's needier.
our soon to be 2 year old has some nights when she still nurses every 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending upon what is going on. teething, especially molars, have been a huge influence on night nursing frequency. on average though she usually goes about 3 hours between nursings at night. she cosleeps with us and the sidelying nursing has been a true lifesaver, some nights i hardly wake up when she latches on. and since dd doesn't even wake up at all, she just rolls over and latches on in her sleep, it's not like she needs to be attended to to soothe her if she had woken up and started to fuss/cry.
as ruthla said, i would definitely try the sidelying nursing again. sometimes the proportions of mama and baby don't work for that position in the early months, but as the baby gets bigger things might change.
hang in there, mama!
