Thanks superfastreader. I guess I just have this feeling that weaning will be so traumatic for my dd. She is still so attached to the num-nums. But perhaps I am underestimating her. Glad it went so smoothly for your dd and you still have time for her to forget.
And then the last time she nursed it was first thing in the morning last week & I let her latch on, but said I would sing her favorite song to her and then it would be all done. She put her hand over my mouth b/c she didn't want me to stop, so I said, "You may have a chocolate chip when we're all done." She came off immediately begging for a chocolate chip. The next morning, the first words out of her mouth were, "I want a chocolate chip!" (I did not give her one LOL.)
I think that the key every step of weaning was to break certain associations. When we nightweaned, it was by having DH take over bedtime and nighttime comforting. When we mostly dayweaned, we had family in town and we spent a lot of time outside of home. And then for napweaning, it was all about letting go of the nap altogether.
