Just some pts on what i did. My gal is 27 mths [ 2yrs plus]. I did bf my gal but what i always do is after feeding her i will put her in the cot to sleep from day 1[it was very very difficult] cos once kids co sleep in our bed they may refuse cot or play pen. Then when my gal was around 20 mths i transfered her to the next rm and use a baby monitor. She sleeps in a playpen now. I will be soon transfering her to a bed. I just delivered my no 2 who is sleeping in the cot in my rm now. She will occasionally wakes up at nights calling out to us[ but that is usually when she is overstimulated in the day]. It cn be frustrating at times. But i never bring her back to my rm for convienience. i will go over comfort[kiss and hug] and talk to her sit with her then come back & to my rm.
Another thing that i did was i never wake my gal at night when she was a baby for every 3 hours to feed. She wakes up then i fed.. that too i stopped when she slept thru the night. i give 9 pm & 6am one milk feed. My nephew was woken up like this. He is already 30 mths but still never sleeps thru the night according to his parents!!
