My son is 14 mo and still nurses 2-4 times a night, honestly I don't know how much longer I can do it. At the same time though I don't want him to wean completely! We have tried the Dr. Jay Gordon method and it worked for a week or so and then we were back where we started. I should probably add that DS nurses anywhere from 3-8 times during the day as well as eating 3 meals, and 2 snacks. He can't still be nursing at night because of hunger can he? The boy can seriously put away some food!! Any ideas? Tips? anything?

He could be hungry.

I would work to make night-nursing less disruptive for you first. Is he in your bed? I would encourage him to latch on by himself so you don't have to wake up every time.

We part time co-sleep. He goes to sleep in his crib then comes to bed with us when he wakes up. He does sometimes latch on by himself, othertimes he sits up and decides it's time to play with mommys hair, or earings or daddys nose
