I'm torn about night weaning. My 14 month DD still nurses right when I get home from work, before bed, 1-2 times at night, and once in the morning before work. She nurses more often on weekends or whenever I'm around (she asks for it). DH has stayed home with her since I went back to work when she was 3 months old. She starts nursery school next week, 8am-12pm for 4 days a week.
In November, DH will travel with DD back to the US (we live in Austria) 2 weeks ahead of me and then we'll all be there together for a month.
Usually when DD wakes up at night I nurse her back to sleep. Lately, though, we've been trying to have her go back to sleep on the first waking with DH and a bottle of expressed milk. It's not working. She cries hysterically and throws the bottle. I lay awake in bed cringing and wanting to run to her. Last night I let them go 15 minutes before I came in. She has her own room right next to ours and has been in her own crib since she was 4 months. We've kept her in our bed sometimes, but she doesn't sleep well there, maybe because so much light comes in from the outside (her room has blackout shades, not an option for our room because of how the windows are built.)
Any advice on the night weaning or the upcoming separation? I'm wondering if we should just stop with the night weaning, but I don't want her to go cold turkey when they travel together without me. I don't want to wean her completely- I plan on pumping again during that 2 week separation, hoping that she remembers when we see each other again.
