I have a 12 month old that likes to wake 8 plus times a night just to nurse.she barley eats soilds and wont take a cup or bottle. I would like to move her to her own room and night wean her. She starts out in her play pen beside my bed and then ends up in bed with me. I have no clue where to start.

Like anything in life you need to just do it.
It is hard, it wont be easy but she is 12 months old you need to break the habit of this now before she is 12 years old and still sleeping in your bed.

Just don't let her do it. It'll be hard for awhile but it will be a lot easier then doing it when she is 3 years old. They're a lot more persistant the older they get

Lol um no, she won't nurse all night in moms bed forever.



OP we are going through this too, except dd is 2. When she was 15 months we moved her to a toddler bed and it really helped. She still comes in for boobs around 3am but it's better than having her snack all night long right next to me

I actually found that my dd understands the decrease is nursing a lot easier now at 2 than she would have at 12 months

I am not saying just nursing I mean sleeping in moms bed all night.
It happens, I have watched it happen. It is harder to break this the older they get.

I'd start with night weaning. When she is used to that then start transitioning her into her own room. I weaned DD from night nursing after she turned one, though she was taking in solids and nursing during the day. I only allow her to have water during the night, which she didn't like at first but got used to.
