Probably you are grumpy and headachy partly b/c of your sleep cycles being in tune with his before--you'd nurse, hormones would kick in to relax you, that is what your body expects. This will stop when he stops the codeine, which is strong stuff.
Maybe you will be lucky and he will nurse til age 4, 5, 6, 7? Some do.
It is nice to have special time with the nursling in the middle of the night when you have a biggish family (new moms don't get this!). Don't worry, even after weaning, you can still have special moments with him alone, and his sibs too! Shopping trips, board games, books, walks, etc...
