I'm trying to wrap my head around nightweaning my 12 month old twins. They currently sleep in the same crib, side-cared up against our bed. We also have a pack'n'play next to the crib closer to the foot of the bed for times when they used to nap separately, so that's an option if we need it. But I hate to put one in the crib all cozy next to us and one in the pack'n'play down near the cold floor at the foot of the bed - it just doesn't seem fair. We're in the process of finishing building my older DD's new room, at which point we'll be able to set up two cribs and a bed for ourselves in DD's old room, but that will probably be a few weeks until we get to it. I'd like to try night weaning asap, because I have developed serious insomnia issues from the sleep deprivation (ironic I know), and something has to give. I have high hopes that we can do it with a minimum of tears since the girls don't nurse to sleep (they do take a paci though). Actually, I'm super pissed that despite all my hard work helping them learn to go to sleep on their own without CIO that they are still not sleeping through the night. They wake up every 2 hours like clockwork, and really seem like they're hungry - not just nursing to be able to get back to sleep. I know they "SHOULD" be able to go all night without nursing by this point, but they also "SHOULD" be magically sleeping through the night since they don't nurse to sleep. Ha Ha.
So DH is willing to sleep next to them and try to settle them himself in the middle of the night, but I seriously doubt he'll be able to settle two babies at once, and they'll definitely be waking each other up if we don't separate them. But then I feel bad about separating them from each other and also taking away the comfort of the breast in the middle of the night... Should we wait to night wean at all until we've transitioned them into cribs in their new room and given them time to get accustomed to it, or would it be better to try right now as-is?
