I would definitely wait until after the trip. Your baby might really need some extra comforting when his world literally turns upside down and the best way to do that (at least with my kids) is to nurse.

I'm pretty certain you can find some good information on how to gently night-wean at Dr. Sears' website or at Kellymom.

Remember that sleeping through the night is a developmental milestone (like walking or toilet training) that different babies will reach at different times. At some point, your child will sleep through the night - even if you do nothing to encourage it.

If night weaning is not going well, then consider backing off and trying again a little later. The closer your child is to reaching this milestone on his own, the easier it will be for both child and parents.
