How to end night nursing....if possible lol

My dd is 15 months. She only nurses at night (still like a newborn 3-4 times) any advice on how to get her to slack off? We also co-sleep. Some nights she will not go back to sleep after nursing which I thinking due to cutting teeth but we have a bouncer that she sleeps in. When she sleeps in the bouncer she will sleep all night. I honestly think if I could get her to sleep alone she would sleep all night I just don't know how to do it. Any advice?

No ....I honestly am not ready to stop co sleeping. My 4 yr old is also in our bed. ( i love it ). Do you think she will eventually stop on her own.

Yes, she will eventually stop on her own. However, if you want to stop the night nursing, or even just decrease it a bit, this article ahs some great suggestions on nightweaning a toddler who shares your bed!

Try offering to nurse more during the day.

We only nurse at night. She is weaned from the day.

Is her not nursing during the day anymore considered progress? I'm not trying to be rude, I'm curious. For us, his nursing less and less at night was progress, even though he nurses every few hours during the day time. He's a few months older than yours, but I'm trying to avoid the night nursing entirely and the easiest way for us is to have him sleep somewhere other than next to me. So if you don't want to stop nursing entirely I'd nurse during the daytime, and for not nursing during the night I'd have someone else(who's not lactating) sleep next to him.

I am in the same boat!  My guy is just about 15 months and all of a sudden quit nursing during the day and only at night while he is asleep.  We also bed share and love it.  He will not nurse at all during the day, not sure how I feel about it.  I thought he would go longer.  At night he won't even nurse to bed but once he is asleep and stirs he will nurse.
