I'm always reading questions about nightweaning and find myself seduced by the idea from time to time with my very frequent 13 month old night nurser.<br><br>
But in thinking about it...I have remembered that my older children actually more day weaned before nightweaning. The nightime nursings were the very last to go. It seemed like they would get too busy during the days and then just maybe nurse to nap or if hurt. And then they wouldn't nurse so much because they might not want to nap. But they would often sortof play catch up at night and then slowly but surely that went away too.<br><br>
I've just been fascinated by so many writing about night weaning first.<br><br>
Are we my experiences unique?

You know, if I weren't pregnant I wouldn't be working on nightweaning. And since I work outside the home, I"m not home for day nursings much.<br><br>
So I don't think you are being whacky at all, lol. I am pretty sure that were I home full time, and just let it all happen with no "gentle nudging" on my part, that day nursings would go before nightnursings did.<br><br>
If it isn't bothering you, enjoy the time! While I'm happy at our nightweaning successes, it's a tad bittersweet to think that one day she isn't going to nurse at all.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

DS is 25 months and I can't imagine him not nursing during the day. We did nightwean at 22 months, though, because his teeth were in and DH and I were literally worn out from almost 2 years of waking 10ish times a night. DS took it very well and it was definitely the right decision for us.
