Re: Replacement for Bedtime Nursing?
Yes, I agree with mommal. You should have someone else do the bedtime routine until he is completely weaned.
Also, I'm not sure what drugs you are talking about, but I had a c-section with my first child and they gave me percocet for the pain after. There was no concern with taking the medication and then having to wait for some period of time to pass - and that was for a newborn. For a child that is only nursing once a day, you could easily time the medication to take it right after the bedtime routine finishes. I can't imagine that the abdominal incision for bladder surgery is any bigger than that for a c-section.
If you want to wean because you want to wean - then that's great and you should do that. But if you are doing it because you believe that you have to be concerned about half-lives of medication - then I do not think it sounds like that will be the issue you believe it to be.
