    Divas. Plus Daniel took a binky, and Lucy doesn't. And if I remember rightly, Dan helped like 5% of the time with Daniel at night. And he helps about 0.05% of the time with Lucy. She is a boob monster.

    Yeah, no way would Grace have ever gone for it. That's why I was so shocked when I caught myself telling her to go back to sleep and she simply whined "awwww!" and rolled back over and passed out. But obviously she was older then, and I only had one child to worry about parenting.

    Well, she was 26 or 28 mos. when she cut her last tooth and went to only waking once a night, if that gives you any more hope.

    It actually makes me feel a bit hopeless. Cause mine cut her last teeth about a month ago. And she still sleeps like crap.

    DS has been weaned from the boob since 11 months. Well he was day weaned at 9 months when the milk ran out. He kept night nursing for 2 more months. And we didn't get rid of a night bottle until he was about 18 months . He still sleeps like crap and I keep a bottle of water by the bed just in case. He is 2.5.

    I am pretty sure DD will be night weaned by the time she is five

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

But when it came down to it and I HAD to try, it went so much better than I thought.
    Details? How did you do it? i think DS will freak if i try!

    I did the Jay Gordon method, but on my own time line. We stayed at the 'nurse until they are almost asleep and then unlatch them' stage for about a month. I also replaced nursing with other types of things- back scratches, foot rubs, songs, stories. There were tears, I'm not saying it was easy, but it was easier than I thought it would be. And really if it hadn't been absolutely necessary I don't know that I would have had the mental stamina to stick to it and cuddle her through the tears instead of just giving in and nursing her.
