I have to say that's our main saving grace about most aspects of parenting! lol (bedsharing that is! lol)

I think my ONLY saving grace with his frequent night wakings is the fact that we still bed-share. So all I have to do is roll over so he can latch, and then go right back to sleep. Without that, I think I'd be a zombie right now.

Congrats!! I know my older child went through a nursing revival at around 18 months and I've heard of other kiddos doing likewise. Hopefully nighttime settles down for you soon.

Today is a great day!

I completely understand on wishing they would cut back at night, but that seems to be the time when my DD eats the longest. She is too busy during the day to really get that great hind milk. Congratulations on keeping it up so long, especially with a preemie! That is definitely something to be proud of.

As of the 11th, DS has been breastfeeding for 18 months - the first nine weeks of which were exclusive pumping for a preemie! This is exciting for me because my first two only nursed for 9 months TOTAL (between the two of them). And we see no end in sight, though cutting back a bit on how frequent would be REALLY nice. Especially at night. lol
