Re: DH is taking over Nights. How should we go about this?
Has DH ever gone to them when they woke up at night before? When Lilah was that age, my DH took over her bedtime routine. She was happy with him being the one to put her to bed in about a week. I think that in the middle of the night, when she expected to nurse and wasn't really awake, that it may have been a disaster. After he did her bedtime for several months, he started responding to her when she woke at night. He would give her a sip of water and sleep in her bed with her if she needed someone to stay there. We got her a full size bed when she was 16 months old.
For me, it seems easier to change the nursing to sleep thing. Everyone is awake and rational and you can talk about it beforehand. If I ever feel like I need to night-wean Trixie, I think we will do it the same way we did with Lilah.
How do you guys handle night wakings now?
Lilah 10/08 nursed 25 months
