We used our version of Dr Jay Gordon's method. We waited until after the eye teeth and molars were through because before that it was ridiculous to even attempt it. I don't consider it really a method, but teaching your child to night-wean. You'll know if your child isn't ready. For us it was about 3 days, no real crying (some fussing in my arms). We realized, he just needed a gentle push and the skills to let go of night-nursing. I look back on it very positively! But no, we still don't STTN. Sometimes he needs a little hug or kiss but we cosleep so I dont mind. Plus I think once you've had one kid your sleep patterns change. You forever sleep lighter and wake every couple hours out of instinct.
