night weaning? MotherFalcon+2 2 kids; Fólkvangr, Asgard, YD, Sweden 4066 posts

Anyone have advice for me as to how to wean my toddler from night nursing?



We've already stopped nursing in the morning, and he doesn't nurse again til naptime, which I am fine with doing.



But he tends to nurse more at night when he's getting tired, and absolutely needs to nurse to fall asleep.



How can I break him of it? He wont let me just cuddle him to sleep or stay in there with him, cuz hell demand to get up and play.



TIA

Can you have someone else do bedtime?

we tried that a couple times, but he screamed when he realized daddy was putting him to bed. Daddy=fun playtime.



hes used to me putting him to bed, and doesnt cry that much, some days he cries a lot and ill leave him for 5-7mins and hell go to sleep.



usually I'll nurse him til hes very tired, then try and put him down. but if he is still awake when i do that, he needs his paci for a few mins til he is asleep.
