I have to tell myself all the time to go at my own pace and trust my instincts. My husband felt our son was ready to night wean at a year, and every time I said OK, I would start crying before we went to sleep and said, "I just can't do it!!" Luckily, my husband always respected my needs and gave us (my son and I) the time we needed. At 15 months, I finally felt that we both were ready and, to my great surprise, he night weaned very easily and now my husband is on daddy duty at night. It has taken so much pressure and anxiety off of me, as I was sure he wouldn't be able to sleep or be comforted without me. And it makes me happy that our son can be soothed by my husband and it doesn't always have to be mama.
Anyway, the point is, when you are ready, you will know when it is time for you and your baby to make the next step and it will be much smoother than forcing it.
