    Default Night-weaning with no help from DH

    For those who have night-weaned their LO's am I crazy to think I can do this on my own?

    DH is a great dad, very involved but works shift work so his help would be inconsistent. I worry that this will confuse DD (to have some nights where Dad provides comfort but other nights not) during this night-weaning process.

    I would appreciate any advice and/or input. Not sure if I'm over-thinking this entirely. DD is 12 months and I feel I need to night-wean (or at least reduce her wake-ups to 1-2 times) in order to get more sleep for myself and be able to nurse her longer overall.

    TIA.

    This link has some good info on getting your LO to sleep longer while cosleeping- doesn't have to include dad.
