Breastfeeding 13 month old many times at night

I am still mostly bf'ing my 13 month old. she goes back and forth from being interested in real food especially since she's getting 4 teeth in right now. She still cosleeps and that has been working well, but I would like to get a full nights rest at some point! LOL. I bf my other 2 kiddos but only til they were 6 and 9 months and we did the whole "cry it out" thing which totally backfired on us and we said we wouldn't do it this time around. She is a very happy and content baby and I still nurse her on demand which can be up to 10+ times a day, which works for me bc I stay home. I think she is getting too old to still be nursing so much at night though and I would love for her to learn how to sleep in her bed now. I have her in her crib right now but I am sitting on the bed across the room so she can still see me. Help!!! LOL any suggestions for the nighttime nursing and crib sleeping????
