I am still nursing my 3.5+ year old son and am really in the same position as many of the posters here.  We nurse only at bedtime and when he wakes in the night.  A big part of me is ready to be...

I should add that he did freak out the first time (and second and third and fourth) time I said no to food after the lights were out, but I held the limit gently.  I said I was sorry he was hungry,...

I used the Boba well into his second year (and I loved it!) but I think it is similar in design to the Ergo.  Once he got too big for that, instead of a stroller I used a tricycle that had a handle...

We have loved our FIRSTbike!  We picked this one because our son is small for his size, and the seat is highly adjustable.  The break has also been great, because sometimes they can get going very...

Thanks all! I do think the naps are the culprit here or at least part of it. I would be fine with him waking up at 5 am but I can't put him down at 5 pm when I get home from work right then.... Now...

JollyGG, unfortunately my husband is not an option. He has to wake up at 5 am most mornings and just does not have the patience for nighttime parenting.

Thanks Daffodil. He does still nap, 1-3. I tried phasing out the naps but night times were a disaster - tantrum central, if he even made it. More often than not he would fall asleep in his high...

My DS is 3 and has been nursing himself to sleep from birth. For the last year, it has basically stopped working. Which means he ultimately does fall asleep nursing but it takes - no lie - as much...

I think it's natural to look forward and ask what's next.  If it's any comfort, that 11 pm wake up was the first one my son gave up -- right around 2 years old.  Now he can reliably sleep from...
