I posted a few weeks ago about an upcoming trip without my LO and this next line of questions are related to that, too.
I was not planning on night weaning until my son was at least a year old, but I am now wondering how he will react when I am suddenly not around to nurse him for a few nights. Part of me thinks we should trying night weaning over the next couple months to avoid one more shocking change when I am gone, but another part of me thinks it is too early for that. I usually nurse him to sleep at bedtime and middle of the night, but there have been times when my husband has rocked him to sleep, so we know he responds to that sleep routine, too.
Here come the rapid fire questions:
Is it too early for night weaning?
How much is the night nursing about the food versus the comfort?
How should I prepare the babysitters (my parents) for potential night feedings?
Could no night weaning lead to my poor parents having to comfort a wailing baby every night that won't settle?
And most important, am I over-thinking this?
Thanks for any insight!
