For many reasons, I have decided that I need to night wean my 3.5 year old in the next few months. She is very resistant to the idea. When I even mention that sometime she won't be able to nurse at night, she almost starts to cry. If I didn't have serious health problems impacted by my lack of sleep, I would have no problem continuing, but I do.
My question is whether in this case it might make sense for me to go away for a couple of nights and leave her with DH. I have a feeling that if she knows I'm not home that's she'll accept comfort from him fairly easily. But if I'm home, she'll scream her head off.
Then there's the question of what happens when I come home. Is it possible that she'll continue to accept DH? That would be great!
The other thing is that I've been cosleeping with her in her room since she was 10 months. I think it's probably better to transfer all night time needs to DH for a while and he can sleep with her. Does this seem like it would make the transition easier?
Thanks for your input!
