Re: Still up 4+ times a night to feed.....
He is definitely old enough to go ahead and try to night wean if the waking is making you miserable. Though a more realistic stretch of sleep to go for would be about 5 hours. I also used Dr. Gordon's method (which mommal linked you to) and it worked well for us, but his method also recommends choosing a 5 hour stretch of the night that you'd like to cut out nursings for. Just know that actively night weaning means that things will likely get harder before they get better. Especially if your baby's current wakings are due to something like getting her one year molars, which can go on for a long time and is pretty painful for them. Something like that may mean your baby will probably still wake up, you just won't be nursing them back to sleep, which for some moms is not worth the extra hassle. I chose to wait to night wean my daughter until she had all her teeth, which I believe made it easier.
