We just finished night #6 and it's going so well. Ds3 is almost 23 months and we are both apparently ready for night weaning because it's working. I'll admit there were two particularly rough nights, but we are both happy and feeling good. Dh's solution was always to wean completely and get him out of our bed, but knowing he's our last babe I did not want to end the midnight cuddles and nursing outright. I tried the no cry sleep solution, but without a clear, proven plan I couldn't make anything happen. This was a clear plan with plenty of positive results so I was confident.

YIPPPEEEE!!!! (can you tell I'm well rested? lol)

For the past month I literally could not get him off of me the entire night... and that of course includes hours of fiddling, pinching, scratching the opposite nipple. I have osteoarthritis in my hips and back so I was getting up in the morning not only sleep deprived but extremely sore from not sleeping in a more comfortable position.

Last night was glorious! He slept straight until 4:30, all snuggled up beside me. At 4:30 he gave a few grunts and repositioned himself and went back to sleep until 6:15 when we had a wonderful morning nurse.

My other two children did not night wean until they were 3... I was in no real rush, despite being tired. I'm glad I made myself enjoy those nights, but I just couldn't do it any longer with ds3. I hope you are able to enjoy those nights and I hope that you'll also be able to enjoy full nights of sleep soon enough.

Take care.
