We went on a vacation about 4 weeks ago. Prior to it, I had started Jay Gordon's nightweaning method - mostly because I'm freaking exhausted.
We are going on a trip in about 2 weeks. I started trying to reintroduce the nightweaning. The first night was an absolute nightmare. The second night was better. Last night, again, was terrible.
She gets so angry. She starts kicking and gripping with her fingernails if I try to hold her rather than nurse. She sobs like she's in absolute agony. I feel so awful, but I also feel like I really am tired of nursing at night.all.night.long.
I wonder if I should even bother with trying to move forward with our trip coming soon. I am pretty sure she will revert once we go. I'm wondering if the fact that I believe that she will freak out without nursing at night on our trip means she's really not developmentally ready to be nightweaned. But then another part of me wonders if it's just her habit, since there are plenty of babies her age and younger who sleep fine without eating all night. Sigh.
Maybe I'm just rambling now...
