We started nightweaning our now 19 mo about 5 weeks ago. It was rough the first week then pretty smooth sailing after that. We sort of did Jay Gordon but without the first stage (nursing him for a few minutes then stopping just seemed to make him more upset).
I am ECSTATIC to say that now DS pretty much STTN ( after a year and a half of 4 to a million wakings per night) from 8pm till 4 am most nights. Sometimes he wakes once and goes easily back to sleep with back pats or music. Our original morning start time for nursing was 5 am and I was ok with that. I can't sleep when he nurses because he's very aggressive and wriggly so 5 am was wake up time for me even though he would doze on and off until 6 or so. But then he started pushing it earlier- 4:45, then 4:30. And I would give in because it was almost 5. But NOW, it's 4 on the dot every day and waking at that time makes my mornings pretty crappy.
So for mamas who have BTDT, how did you push forward that morning nursing in a nightweaned baby?
