I'm looking for advice on getting my 2 year old to be able to fall asleep without nursing to sleep. I am not interested in night weaning. We co-sleep and she nurses a couple of times a night while I mostly stay asleep. I don't want to discourage this nursing in the middle of the night yet. I would prefer she drop those sessions out when she is ready on her own, but I would like to help her to learn to fall asleep without having to nurse.
She will not sleep unless I'm there nursing her. I was out at night last week and hoped that she would fall asleep without it, but she was still very much awake and very tired when I got home at 11:30pm. She usually falls asleep between 9:30-10:30. All of the advice I've been able to find is for night weaning. I think it would work well to tell her that we only nurse on the sofa or some tactic like that if I wanted to night wean, but this obviously can't work if I want to let her nurse at night. Sorry this is long. Any advice will be appreciated. TIA
