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.
