Ok...talk me through night-weaning...
I think I'm ready. I think DD is going to HATE it, but I hope she gets over it fairly quickly.
I have to do this on my own (without help from DH) because he just needs his sleep to work- and since he's the breadwinner for us, I respect his need for sleep.
I think I'll ask DH to go sleep in the guest bedroom while we do this, instead of us going in the guest bedroom. I want to be able to keep putting DD back in her own toddler bed- which is in our room.
So, favorite method? I know I saw that one article...who was it... Jay Gordon?
Should I at this point (DD will be 21 mos next week), expect her to cope with no milk from bedtime til morning get up time (essentially between 7-8pm and 7-8am) or should I try the 7 hour thing- like no milk between 11 and 6?
Help. I feel like I need my hand held. This is a big deal. But I'm done with sitting there with her awake in the middle of the night, not wanting to nurse her, but eventually giving in to it.
And what did you do instead of nursing. Last night, and a couple times on vacation DD did a weird thing where she would refuse to DRINK the water I was offering her (she obviously wants to NURSE, not drink- big difference!), but, when I would try to put it away, she would act like I was cutting off her limb. So she would fall asleep clutching her sippy cup or my camelbak. So silly...but, I'm willing to let her sleep with a bottle of water if that's what it takes!
So anyway.... :help1:
