This has included limiting his night time nursing to 3 times after I nurse him down (a HUGE decrease for him). He has usually nursed his 3 times by about 1am-1:30am. Then I make him wait until the sun comes up around 6am to nurse again (ninis are asleep while it is dark out). The first night went well. He stayed up the whole time but didn't really cry hard, and just whined on and off. The second night was about the same. Last night was pretty bad. He was screaming and didn't even want me to touch him. This lasted pretty much the whole time I refused to give him ninis (about 4 hours). At one point he was even throwing a full on fit, flailing his arms and legs and yelling at dh to get out of the bed. All very unheard of behavior for him.
I also wanted to encourage you to remember that nursing is not an all or nothing proposition. If you get him night weaned and then don't feel so ick about nursing--- keep nursing those other times
