Re: Breastfeeding and Sleep Training woes
I think it is much easier to drop the nurse-to-sleep association at night than at nap-time. At night, a toddler is so tired that she will eventually fall asleep even if she doesn't nurse. At nap-time, most toddlers are definitely tired, but they are not ready to drop the way they are in the evenings. If your LO is content to go to sleep without nursing at night, I honestly don't think it's that important that you drop the pre-nap feedings. You can keep using that tool during the day while abandoning it at night.
If you really want to drop the pre-nap feedings, I suggest that you try having your toddler nap in the car or in a stroller or a swing. My second daughter napped in her stroller from around 12-30 months. She had absolutely no interest in sleeping in her crib!
