Re: Dr. Jay Gordon method-it works!!!
What do you do if your baby doesn't sleep in bed with you?
I have been attempting to night wean, and in fact we haven't nursed between 11 and 7 for the past three nights. It's requiring a ton of crying though, which I was adamant I would never do. I'm just at my witt's end though with our sleep situation, and if she doesn't nurse when she awakens at night, there's no other way to calm her down. And it hasn't really gotten any better with subsequent nights like I thought it would. In fact, she's started nursing to sleep at bedtime, refusing to be put down awake. She hasn't nursed to sleep at bedtime since 6 months old, and she's 14 months!
I told myself I would give it a week, but I don't think I can. The crying absolutely kills me, and I picture my poor baby in her crib thinking "Why isn't mama nursing me like she always does?"
Sorry I think I just needed to vent.
