night time fits

My son is 16 months old and is still doing the 5am feeding. I have no problem with this but he is starting to just want to suckle longer and longer and after about 30-45 min I'm over it and want to go back to sleep. If I don't, he throws a big time fit. He does the fit thing for my husband when I'm working (I work 2 nights a week), too. Should I cut out this feed all together? I origionally allowed this feed to continue to keep my milk supply up, but I don't think that's necessary anymore. Would he start sleeping better if he stopped expecting to eat at this time, or some 16ers still need this feed?

I suggest you just bring him into bed with you for this early fed and so both of you can sleep during it.
