We've worked on night weaning, and have night weaned a few times since Jan 1, but it keeps coming back!
In all fairness my son has been teething, but really, we are running out of steam, and I'm starting to resent nursing all together.
We've been doing the Dr Gordon's method, and so then my son scream crys at every waking, and wakes every hour for the first couple days, and then finally he'll sleep about a week, and then we're back to scream-crying and waking every hour and taking an hour to get back to sleep for another week. We've done about 3 rounds of this.
I'm nursing him at night now, because i feel like if I have to deal with another night... no even another wakeup of scream-crying I'm going to loose it. But nursing makes me feel just as angry/irritated/mad as the scream crying. I blame hormones.
I just feel stuck. I don't want to wake up at night multiple times to nurse my child, and I don't want to wake up multiple times to scream-crying.
I am on the verge of totally weaning because this is making me so angry!
He doesn't nurse at all during the day at daycare. He likes to nurse at drop off and pickup and to bed, and I like those too. He's eating tons of food, and recently turned 18 mos. He's also given Advil, water, etc, to no avail.
