Re: Painful Night time weaning
Wow. It sounds like you are having a really hard time. What makes you think there is no milk? Is there a reason you feel like you have to be done nursing by the time she is one? Have you thought that maybe you need to take it a little slower?
When is the last night-time feed? Is it right before bed? I think that if you are going to night-wean her, especially at this age, and especially when she clearly still wants to nurse - then you should not be going to her at all at night. Your DH needs to handle it. Your daughter wants to nurse but she won't expect to nurse with Daddy. As for if you should put her to sleep with a bottle... I don't know. Have you guys tried a pacifier? also, are her molars coming in? That is usually really hard for babies and makes them want to nurse even more.
