i just finished night weaning my 2yo dd (after day weaning her a few months previous to this). She was an avid nurser. maybe 2 hours total during the night we would be separated.<br><br>
she weaned pretty easily (meaning in a couple of days) and now she sleeps thru the night. I, on the other hand, continue to wake up at 3ish and can't get back to sleep. I'm tired most of the day now and feel really stressed out.<br><br>
i also miss the cuddling-to-sleep period. (she doen't like cuddling when she sleeps now.)<br><br>
i suppose that most of this is caused by the hormonal shifts of bfing and my cycles returning. any advice with how to cope with this?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

I have not started to ween my ds, who will be 3 next month. But when our days are busy or I have been at work and I am so stressed out, I don't realize how much I need him to nurse until I put him down for a nap or just lay down with him. My mood becomes positive and we both just relax and melt.<br>
That does not mean I havent thought about weening him. And sometimes I do get a little impatient with being 'attached' when he is nursing to fall asleep and I need to take the clothes out of the washer. But I've decided for now, I'll let him dictate and he can self ween. Thank goodness my dh will put him down at bedtime though, whew!<br>
I am sorry that I have no great words of advice or answers. I can only say hang in there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> get all the cuddles and kisses whe dd is awake!<br>
Good luck and hugs to you!!
