my 12 month year old nurses to sleep. i was thinking of night weaning him soon but wanted to give him some self soothing strategies before doing so. he cannot put himself to sleep at all. any tips??he is a high needs passionate baby so things tend to be a little more intense for him. 

the reason i want to night wean him is because my husband and i would like another baby...soon. we have fertility issues and it requires us to not be breastfeeding. we have moved the date several times now . i am thinking night weaning because the transition may be less intense rather than doing it all at once. 

but even if i continue to breastfeed(which i love anyway) i'd really like to have him not nurse to sleep. he has sleeping difficulties and i'd like to see him comfort himself.

please any tips

know where else i should post this?
