DD is almost a year and I am really feeling the need to at least partially night wean her. I would be fine with even 2-3 feeds during the night or even 4, but she does WAY more than that and has since birth. I don't see this changing anytime soon. I am feeling depressed from lack of sleep and I don't feel that I am 100% there for my daughter during the day because I am so tired. I feel like at this point we need to at least try night weaning. We are waiting until she turns 1 in a few weeks to try Dr. Jay Gordon's method.
I do have a few concerns though. She is still EBF. She will occasionally taste a bite of something, but she is mostly not interested in food yet. Is it okay to night wean a 100% breastfed baby? Will she make up for the missed night feeds during the day? I am worried about her being hungry that first night! She must get a substantial amount of calories at night since she nurses so often so I am just not quite clear on how this is supposed to work. Does she really not need those feeds? (Again I am fine with a few feeds at night...just not ALL night.) Anyone have any success with this or any type of night weaning? Any tips or advice would be really appreciated! Thanks!
