We are gradually wanting to night-wean our co-sleeping 20 month old. She nurses to sleep and nurses again about 3 times during the night (and that is a good night). I have done lots of reading and sought lots of advice and have some good ideas about how to proceed one step at a time.
But I have realised I have a specific question - do you think it is possible to cut out the night feedings without having to change how she goes to sleep (nursing)?
I've assumed from all the advice I've had that it's not because of the sleep association she has with nursing, but I've realised I have no problem nursing her to sleep - it's just the night wakings I would like to do away with!
Also my dh's mother said that he just suddenly stopped nursing 2-hourly at night when he was 22 months old. Does anyone else have any experience of that - that it can just suddenly stop without any particular effort on the parents' part?
