I have an almost 15 m/o DD that I want to CLW but I'm having a really hard time w/ night nursing. The problem is that I am in school full time and really need my sleep but she is (w/o exaggeration) waking at least 7 or 8 times a night!!!
DD has never been a good sleeper. It took me months to get her to sleep a 4 hour stretch and that included her learning to sleep w/o a nipple in her mouth and how to fall asleep AFTER we nursed. Then, around the beginning of July, she started sleeping terribly again and the only thing she will accept to go to sleep is my breast.
I want to nurse until we are both ready to stop and I am afraid that night weaning could stop our nursing all together. Is there anyone else here who night weaned (for whatever reason) and was able to continue nursing long term?
