Yes there is a light at then end of the tunnel! My co-sleeping 3 year old was night weaned at 18 months. I used Dr. Jay Gordon's gentle night weaning method and it worked. He does not recommend night weaning until at least 15 months. I made a book for my son and read it to him daily for at least 3 months before and since then he has slept thru the night. Good luck!

Awesome suggestion! I will try this. Thanks!
Thanks for your input. We never used a paci- so my son hasn't a substitute to turn to. I can see where that would come in handy.

I am currently pregnant and it's getting to be really painful and a lot of responsibility to nurse my 2 year old to sleep both for naps and for nighttime.   There have been only a handful of times where my husband has been able to rock him to sleep without nursing. I have night-weaned which has made my life a bit more manageable but sometime he nurses for such a long time to get to sleep that it gets very painful and I don't know how I will be able to continue to do...
