My baby is nearly 9 months old (20 pounds, 1 ounce). He has been waking quite a lot at night and I do know some night waking is normal. We co-sleep and that used to work great, but now he rouses, nurses and then has a really hard time settling back in. If my husband walks him, though, he goes right back to sleep. We spoke with our Health Visitor today who suggested that we start night weaning. My husband is very enthusiastic about this, but I have mixed feelings. While I'd love some more sleep (I am really exhausted and have gone back to work and am finding that I am increasingly emotional and having a hard time coping due to fatigue), I am also SO, SO committed to breastfeeding and to meeting my baby's needs. Anyway, I'm leaning towards trying it and seeing what happens with the understanding that if he is crying and not settling then I will nurse him. One thing that does worry me, and what I'm wanting some feedback on, is this: I have always been told that nursing between 1am-6am (ish) is really important for supply. Does this cease to be true after a certain age? I'm worried that if he does actually stop nursing at night that it could adversely affect my supply. Thoughts?
