My DS is 15 month old. He nurses about 3 to 4 times a day mostly in the evenings. We co sleep and he wakes to nurse once or twice during the night. I work full time and during weekends when he naps during day time i nurse him to sleep. On weekdays my mom rocks him to sleep for his nap. His naps are always short. He will sleep continuously for 1 hr and will wake up and cry. My mom will have to rock him back to sleep and he will go back to sleep for another hour. If it is a weekend if he wakes up and cries i nurse him back to sleep.
Now i am starting to wonder if he is frequently waking up just to nurse..And if indeed will he take the 2 - 2.5 hr nap continuously if i had not nursed him back to sleep every time he wakes.?
And also do toddlers who are completely weaned wake up during the night or do they sleep through the night?
My sister in law's baby was completely weaned by 9 months and his naps are pretty long..
