My DD recently turned 3 and I am ready to drop the am wakeup nurse and wondering how to go about it. We nightweaned 6 months ago and it took a couple weeks of crying during the night and rewards in the morning to get over the hump but we did.
The am wakeup nurse is a big deal for her, especially since she has gone all night but I am pretty much without patience for it anymore as she starts waking anywhere from 5am to 6am with the deal that she can nurse from 6am, so I often have to help her back to sleep multiple times and then once she starts nursing she can go off and on for up to 90 minutes or more. I have the sense that she would sleep longer too if she wasnt waking up for milk (and she is currently underslept). And I need to be able to get up, exercise, get ready etc. without feeling teethered to the bed and my girl for 90 minutes to two hours of off and on nursing. I'm exhausted and resentful. This am the wakeups started at 4:30!
I am also looking at getting her sleeping in her own room and wonder whether this might work well in tandem or if its better to get started while still cosleeping. Any thoughts, recommendations and BTDT would be super helpful in getting over this next hump with my super sensitive milk lover.
