Um, how long is a just turned 2 year old's memory anyway?

We nightweaned months ago! He still wakes up at least once a night, probably 4 nights a week. I don't nurse him, I comfort him other ways.

Yet he still asks. If he's going to be waking up anyway, what was the point of nightweaning him? Should I give up the idea and just nurse him back to sleep or keep persevering?

I can only speak for myself. At that age nursing dd when she woke up, meant she went back to sleep much faster. Comforting her in other ways would have meant less sleep for me so I didn't bother nightweaning. (We were cosleeping so getting her back to sleep didn't involve getting out of bed or going in another room.)

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50
