Bedsharing=nursing all night?

My 3/mo daughter is 100% breastfed and my husband and I both agreed to bedsharing with her. It’s been super awesome, my anxiety is much better knowing she’s okay through the night. We have been bedsharing for about 1.5months now and recently she’s been ATTACHED to me All Night Long! It’s gotten to the point of her not letting me leave her alone for her naps. I’m wondering if other bedsharing moms have experienced this behavior?

3 months is when they start to cluster feed. So that might be why but also for me. I exclusively breastfed my son and hes not 8 mnths I've transitioned him to his crib and it's been really hard He wakes up every 1-2 hrs to be fed because hes used to having me right next to him when we were bed sharing. Next child I definitely will not be bed sharing.

Definitely. My son is 15 months and still needs mommy or Daddy next to him in order to fall asleep

For sure! I have a two year old son and a two month old daughter. I co-slept with my son. It started because I was so tired from getting in and out of bed all night. It felt like I breastfed ALL night long. Fast forward a few months, sleep training took a lot of effort and many tears (both his and mine). He's in his own bed now but I'm doing things differently with my daughter. We're room sharing. Her crib is in our room. I put her back in her crib after she breastfeeds. She sleeps better than my son did. Maybe she's just a better sleeper but maybe it helps that she can't smell my breast milk all night...

I feel like my daughter uses me as a flesh pacifier. She is constantly attached to her boo-boo, all night long. If I pull away or unlatch her because her latch became shallow, she's right there in a matter of seconds. Its like her 6th sense lol I miss sleeping on my stomach or faced away from her. Shes so BAD. She will literally pull me by my shoulder or hop over my body to get what she wants. Co-sleeping is a blessing and a curse.

She is 18 months. I co-slwpt with all my kids. Only way I'd be able to rest, sleep at night, and function at work/school.

She could be going through a growth spurt. We cosleep due to exclusively nursing and when she’s going through a growth spurt cluster feeds are rough but as they get older it gets easier.
