I'm actually thinking about that, but at a year old, I'd be worried about him getting up in the middle of the night. But I'd probably hear it. I'm the lightest sleeper ever.

Oh lord. This is not what I wanted to hear lol. I'm okay with 18 months....not okay with after 2 years old. And DH getting up in the middle of the night is not an option. He's a beast about his sleep lol. Which I understand since he works all day.

I know my husband did not want to do it at all either!! And I think his unwillingness to help me at first was probably what prolonged it for so long. It really only took about a week of him going in there instead of me to clue my son in that he wasn't getting the boob at night anymore. He started sleeping longer but would still wake up. After a couple weeks though I COULD finally go in there and just cuddle him and he'd go back to sleep. If he asked to nurse I just reminded him we have to wait until the morning.

Well, I guess if I start it at 1 year the worst case scenario is at 2 years old I can explain to him that I'm not giving him the boob lol. I really, really want to be done by 18 months though.

I want to wean my third who I am nursing now by 18 months at least too. I've been able to get him in a crib just within the last month or so (he's almost 9 months). Some nights he will sleep thru but most nights he still wakes up a couple times. What I've been doing is just trying to offer a cup of water with his meals so he gets used to drinking out of something else. Every now and again I give him cold formula from the fridge so that maybe he will take to real milk when it's time for it. With my first, she took really well to a sippy cup so I just made sure she had lots to eat and drink and she was off the boob by 13 months. She just wasn't interested anymore!!

I hope this happens to him! He does like his sippy when I put an ounce of water in it so I hope he'll like milk too. And he eats a lot of table food - probably the same amount as my 4 year old lol.

That sounds promising! My second was a terrible eater, still is! He wouldn't even take a sippy cup til close to 2 years old! My third is eating great so far so I don't think he'll give me as much trouble when I go back to work :) Good luck!

Thanks! My 4 year old was an awful eater up until last year so I know how that goes. I didn't have a tough time transitioning him to a sippy though, probably because I went straight from a bottle of formula to a sippy of whole milk so he was probably happy with the better taste! lol.

DD is 2 and a half and has only ever got out of bed at night twice, and that was in the last month or so. She's happy to just sit there til I come get her lmao.
