I am not really looking for advice, just venting some frustration. I don't really want to nightwean, but we have to since I am leaving for a 6-week class in 5 weeks. We decided to nightwean by keeping Levi in bed with DH and then I have been sleeping in our guestroom. Right now we are just working on the time between 11pm and 4 or 5 am, and then after a week or two we will work on the whole night.
We thought it would help that DH is cosleeping with Levi, but when he wakes up and DH is in bed with him and I am not there he is MAD. DH tries to get him to sleep next to him and soothe him but he just sits up in his little bed that's next to our bed and cries and blubbers and then DH has to bring him out to the chair and rock him. He falls back asleep that way, but now DH is getting neck pain from sleeping in the recliner with him most of the night.
I think part of the problem is that he probably has 2 year molars coming in. I feel bad having to nightwean him with that going on, but I don't have a choice on the timing.
I usually wake up at 4 or 5 because Levi is crying and so I nurse him then. I am really freaking out about cutting out that nursing session, I don't think it will go well.
