Mommy to Allison Rae
Born 9-18-07 @ 1:18am
BF for 18 months! Finally weaned!
We used Dr Gordon's method for night-weaning with great success AFTER all his teeth were in. Daniel was using nursing as pain relief, and I had to respect that.
For distraction you want to be sure you are replacing the nursing with something really good. For us snuggling up and reading a favourite book worked well because we were still getting that closeness. Having a little tickle war is good too, again the physical closeness.
