Midwifery Student and Mama to 2 daughters and 3 sons.
I have given birth a variety of ways and I am thankful for what each one has taught me.
I had to wean my son (see below) and we still co-sleep. For over a week I slept in another room but recently I have rejoined the family bed. My ds sleeps through the night, but wakes up much earlier than before (he used to wake up around 7 - 7:30, now he wakes up at 5:45). I wish I could still nurse him so we could go back to sleep at 5:45. My ds was 10 months old when I had to night wean him.
OP: 16 months is a bit on the young side for night weaning. You may find that it's more work than nursing, with little reward. Are there other ways you can find to get rest and rejuvinate yourself? We gently nightweaned my DD around 19 months and looking back it seems like a bit more trouble than it was worth. Although when it's 4 am and you're little one is twiddleing and nursing like it's going out of style night weaning is the most appealing idea in the world!!!!!
