Can someone tell me what to expect? My 19mo DS1 feeds 3-4 times throughout the day and twice at night. He sleeps in a crib. I am 16 weeks pregnant and my supply seems stable at the moment. I enjoy our bf relationship. I don't feel the need to wean completely... hopefully just night wean.
I've been able to disconnect the milk from his nap and bedtime routines by moving it to sometime before the bedtime routine. My husband is now sharing in the bedtime routine activities, which is a big plus for me. But my son demands his milk at night when he wakes up. Nothing else will do (cuddles, songs, rocking, water, etc). He does not drink alternative milk yet due to allergies.
For those whose babes slept in cribs, did they night wean on their own or did they need encouragement? Sending in dad as a replacement has not worked. Also, would you wait until they were night weaned to move them to a toddler bed?
Any thoughts would be great!
