DD (2.5) is pretty much nightweaned.
: About 3.5 weeks ago, I decided I had enough with the night nursing. It was driving me nuts and making me nauseous. DD was also latched on forever. It has been a slow and painful process, especially since we were visiting family from Christmas to New Years. But now she has no problem falling back to sleep in my arms...and it only takes a minute or two. Last night she only woke up once!!! Some nights, she still wakes frequently (like 4 times), but I can get her back to sleep easily and without tears. Hopefully she will begin sleeping through the night soon.
Unfortunately, she shows no signs of slowing down. I'm going to wean her completely soon, and I know that will be very unpleasant. She will be 3 in March, and I know I don't want to tandem nurse. DD whines to nurse soooo often (out of boredom), and now I really dislike nursing. The relationship needs to end before I get too resentful towards her and before I start having feelings like I dont want to nurse #2. I'm determined to have her completely weaned by her third b-day in March. I wish there was a way to do it gently, but I think that there is going to be a lot of tears involved.
