So I have the no cry sleep solution for todders and preschoolers, and I've read the Dr Jay Gordon method as well.
For those that have BTDT, how did you know your lo was ready. . or that you were ready for both of you?
Lately dd has been on an all-night marathon nursing kick, and without much sleep mommy isn't that happy or fun right now. I don't want to make this decision while sleep-deprived though because that's just not fair to her in my book. Also she's been cutting her eye teeth, and has a little cold thing going too, so until both of those are completed I'm not starting.
Anyhoo. . .we "tried" the other night pretty much cold turkey since it was 3:30 am and no one was sleeping. . .and she fussed/cried/screamed for an hour before dh gave her back. I'm wondering if she's letting me know she's not ready, or if she's just a drama diva about it? I gave in because of the cold/possible still teething going on, and then last night she was much better. She nursed, not just comfort sucking. . .but still it was about 4-5 times.
Thanks for listening, and and suggestions/tips you may have I'm greatly appreciative of.
BTW we are also ttc our #3 so this will help my fertility as well. . .but won't push weaning completely as I'd like a more child-led approach this time around
