I have a 19 month old who I am very ready to wean night nursing. I am a working Mom, but cut out 1/3 my work load with the birth of your son, and have to start working more frequently. ( I work from home much of the time) I have an over night away from our son coming up in weeks, and I think it will be hell for my husband. I am wondering how we can prepare him for this shock of his life! Occasionally I work late and come home to my husband holding him on the couch in front of the TV asleep. Every night I put him down awake in his bed, rubbing his back and singing songs, but at some point he ends up in our bed. So we do co sleep nightly in an indirect way. I have read 3 books on the subject. I guess I am trying to find the magic pill that won't require him to "cry it out" I would have to emotionally detach to do that. At night we have introduced a cup of water, and occasionally that works, but he protests allot. On top of that, I love the idea of being pregnant again, and I am so tired all the time during the day, I can't fathom how I could manage that. I am 38 and clocks ticking!
