    Default When did your co sleeping child sleep better?

    Just curious because my dd is a constant night waker and although it is easier not getting in and out of bed for her all night I can't help wishing she would sleep longer. She wakes every 1 to 2 hours. Sometimes she just stirs, and other times she needs a little feed or just latches on and I really feel like she will never outgrow this.. But will she? Did your baby just get to a day where she didn't do this anymore? When my son was this age, I could go out for dinner with friends or go to a party for a few hours and leave him with his dad or nanna and they could keep him happy. I knew he would sleep at least a 3 or 4 hour stretch if not longer. My daughter is just nowhere near ready and I'm wondering when it will sort of "click" for her as it did with my older child. She is very much still needing me as a pacifier which I thought might end by now or soon?

    My DD was probably 18months when she finally stopped using me as a dummy all night and started sleeping through. She now goes into her bed with a breastfeed at around 7ish and will sleep until about 11, when she will hop into bed with us and after a super quick bfeed she will roll over and cuddle DP and sleep solidly without waking until 6:30ish then have her morning bfeed
    She is 22 months

    My son and I co-slept from about 2-10 months because it was easier feeding him at night. It got to the stage he was up 8-10 times most nights wanting a feed, and would only sleep on my lap or in the bed when I was there too. It got to a point where I couldn't handle the lack of sleep, and he moved into his cot. He is now 12 months and in his cot, in his room (Hooray!) and doesn't need a feed overnight. The only solution that worked for us was getting him used to his cot, once he was happy there he didn't need a b00b all through the night! All I can suggest is if you're comfortable moving him to his cot, try that. If you want to continue co-sleeping I don't have any suggestions as it didn't work for us.

    I hope your little one gets over it soon!

    Thank you for your replies. I may consider trying her in her own bed soon. I would love it if it made a difference but I'm not a fan of getting up a hundred times a night at all.. She doesn't take a dummy or a bottle and likes to feed little and often over night which I would like to end some time in the near future
