Out of interest really! I know it can vary. I am interested in when yours stopped feeding in the night? Mine hasn't stopped yet but he has only just turned 2 so I don't expect him to wean anytime soon. However, when he does - will it be gradual or sudden? Does that vary too or is it always gradual? DS1 completely different fish and practically was sleeping through the night from birth! lmao
I ask here because I know those that don't plan to BF full term can often approach daytime (and nightime) breastfeeding differently - so for my purposes, it is important to know when yours stopped feeding in the night if you breastfeed full term.
I have added a poll - you can select more than one answer as I realise people have many children! haha
It was right before 12 months, but I pushed for it because I was losing my mind. We went on to continue BFing during the day easily. I did the Dr Jay Gordon nightweaning plus some NCSS and we went from many wakeups a night to sleeping through the night. Heaven!
Oh, and I get that this is CLW and you were asking probably in those terms, but day and night were different for us. Night I pushed for, day weaning I left up to him (but it was still earlier than others, 2.5 he was done). We both had our needs met that way.
I voted other due to my DS (34 months) still nurses a couple times a night. A dear friend of mine has a almost 4 year old and he also nurses once or twice a night.

My 2.5 year old still nurses throughout the night but far less than even six months ago, when it was hourly or every other hour. There has definitely been a gradual and natural decrease. The whole natural process is fascinating to me.
The middle two kids were helped along by the fact I was pg and had no milk, I think they just stopped asking to nurse after a while at night. Didn't stop their night wakings though.
DS nightweaned at around 11 months and started STTN simultaneously.
DD, however, nightweaned for good when she weaned at 2 years, but woke at night frequently until she started sleeping in DS's room at almost 3. Co-sleeping with her was just not a pleasant or desirable situation for a long time!
My DD is just shy of 26 months and I'd say shes been finially sleeping staight through about the past 3 weeks or so.
