DS is still nursing at night 2-6 times a night and still goes through some nights were he just wants to suckle all night long. He is 23 months.
Very tired here. I have tried night weaning a few times, but he just is not ready..........My dd2 was the same way, but she did stop so there is hope

My youngest will be 3 in October, and he just started sleeping through the night most nights. Before that, he woke to nurse at least 2-3 times per night. On the rare night when he wakes up, I still nurse him back to sleep.

My daughter is 3, and my son is 18 months old; both of them nurse at night - we sleep together. The three year old sometimes nurses less, sometimes more, but is nowhere near weaning yet.

Dd is almost 26 months and wakes 4-5 times a night to nurse. She is pretty much continously latched on from 4am to 6am but I guess I'll only count that as one nursing session

DD is almost 3-1/2 years old and still nurses at night. Since we're late night people, she tends to wake up if I haven't come back to bed yet. Often, it just takes a minute or two, but she still wakes at times and she does still nurse at night. Nursing at night isn't even the thing that is wearing on me these days. It's that sometimes it still seems that she thinks my sitting down at the computer is an invitation to come up and nurse.

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

Oh so nice to see I am not alone, I feel like a pacifier at night. DD is 11 mths old and it seems she gets to midnight - 1 am then the rest of the night she has to nurse, once I think she is asleep and try to put her down she cries. I don't know what to do. I know she is teething, and when a tooth comes in strong she won't eat at all. The Dr. said thats fine as long as she is nursing but my boobs start to hurt after a while. Sorry if to much info.

Same here, although DD is only 16 months old. Fortunately 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.

DD (16mo) usually nurses 1x per night. Sometimes two.

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.

DS is 15m and has been nursing 2-3x a night normally. Except for the last week when he wants to nurse most of the night and refusing to sleep otherwise. I used to be able to fall right back asleep, but lately not so much. Hope it gets better soon, because then I really don't mind the night snacking.

13 months old here. Usually around 3 times a night. If she is teething, it's about 6-7 times. I really don't know.

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
