Well, I finally realize I have to night wean. Has anyone done this, how do I do it, and can it work?
My DS9 is having a kidney transplant in a little over 2 weeks. The hospital will not allow my 7 month old to stay with me or another person in a parent room so I can be close to both children. The baby will need to sleep in a hotel. The transplant coordinator said she did all she could and the surgeon even stepped in but no luck I am really sad about this but I need to make it as easy as possible on my help. I can't leave them with a baby who wakes every 2 hours through the night so I need to start this now.
We are planning on getting a crib (instead of cosleeping) and my DH will get up with him after a last nursing session at around 10 or 11. He will get the baby until 6 or 7 am. Does he need a bottle or should DH just try to get him to sleep without it?
How can I do this? I really need some suggestions.
Oh, I forgot to add that the transplant coordinator said that I might want to try to wean him!! That made me mad.
