So my 13 month old still nurses a lot. He won't put himself to sleep anymore and wakes up several times a night to nurse. He loves to nurse to sleep! He nurses more at night than he does during the day. I know he should be able to go through the night without eating, but I am scared to night wean. I can't stand to let him "cry it out". When my husband goes in to sooth him, he just screams and looks for me. Any advice on how to successfully night wean?
I don't want to completely wean him since he has a milk allergy, so I can't give him cows milk. He doesn't eat solids very good either, so I worry about him getting all the nutrients he needs.
Maybe me nursing him to sleep is part of the problem, I don't know. But I don't know how else to sooth him. He won't take a bottle or binky. We are getting tired at our house; and I would love any opinions and/or suggestions. Thanks!
