Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy > Dropping bedtime nursing first?

My DD turns 3 yo next month, and nurses 3 x a day currently. I'd like to nurse her to self-weaning, but am leaning toward (mother-led) dropping one nursing in the near-ish future. I'd be happy to continue at 2 nursings per day for the foreseeable future, but am personally getting a bit burnt out on three.

I'm considering dropping our bedtime nursing, because it honestly feels like her least important nursing session. However, I realize this may be opposite of many kids - it seems like most kids drop their bedtime nursing last.

Has anyone else dropped the bedtime nursing before dropping morning or midday nursing, whether mother or child-led? Thanks - just curious!

My DS dropped night time nursing last, so I don't have any helpful information on dropping night time nursing last. I just wanted to bump this up for you so someone who might have information can help!
