Hi! My 28 month dd has been down to nursing just at night. (Usually,only to fall asleep and then again around 5 or 6) She falls asleep for naps with a sibling rocking her, or just laying still with me sitting next to her.
We co-sleep and that is really what is motivating the weaning. We want to get her upstairs with her sisters. I think she is excited about sleeping with them tonight, but she doesn't realize that Mommy is not planning on nursing her whenever she wakes.
So, what should I do when she wakes up? Should we go through a period of me going up to nurse her when she wakes at night and just hope that it dies down, since I am not lying next to her? Or, should I just stay away at night. My 13 y/o is willing to help, but she is such a sound sleeper and probably going to be of no use in the middle of the night. And I don't want to ask dh to get up at night because he works.
Thanks for any input from those who have weaned past 2! My other three were so easily weaned but were much younger.
