When we're very busy, visiting family, she doesn't even think of nursing until it's time for bed.
Trying to wean, and it's happening gradually. I wonder if her having her own sleeping space will help things along

...I have no problem sleeping through the all-night nursing, although it wreaks havoc on my back and hips to sleep on my side for so long.
The back pain is the hardest part of night nursing for me. Sometimes it takes as little as an hour to stretch out the kinks and other times I get to keep them for a few days. Luckily the long lasting kinks are happening less and less.
When DS was that age, he was still nursing at night too. All night long. And I'm one of those people who can't sleep through it. AND I was WOHM FT then. We nightweaned because I felt like I was at death's door.

I was talking to another bf mom today at the library. I asked her how long her dc (who is 11 mos) sleeps. She said 12hours. I was like really, not waking up at all? She said that he does wake up but will usually just cry himself to sleep if she doesn't go in his room to comfort him. Whatever, though. She really gave me a crazy look when I told her that I held dd for all her naps until she was 12 months bc she just wouldn't sleep otherwise
I'm new to this board. My 14 mo old daughter still nurse at night more than once for sure (but I don't remember since she sleeps with us on our bed) and during the day.
