To Tavamom, I am curious about your style. I have tried your suggestion of unlatching after 3 breaths w/o sucking and it is really working great!!!YAY.....
To explain my situation briefly: My son just turned 1 a couple weeks ago. He has nursed about every 2 hrs in the night since he was 3 mo. I want to continue to BF but trying to figure out how to get him to sleep a bit more in the night. A month ago he finally started eating meals (3x/day)and snacks. Though he won't drink much, I have tried many different bottles/nipples/sippy cups which so far work the best but he refuses to really drink. He may take a sip or two if I can sneak it in during meals.
So I have tried your method the last 2 nights and he has slept 2hrs-2hrs-4hrs! The second night he slept 4hrs-11/2hrs-5hrs!!! Woo hoo. I am so excited and hopeful this will continue. Thanks for your information. But you were doing this on the way to weaning your kids right? Do you think I can do this for just night weaning???
Do you do this during naps as well? Is this your method or is this from a book? If so I would like to read more about.
Looking forward to hearing back from you.
