A night weaning update

It has been just over a month since we started night weaning our 2 year old...

and we're there. We are night weaned. For the most part, lovely 2 year old is still waking at night (though not every night), but he's easily patted back to sleep for the most part. So, in around 2 weeks, he was night weaned.

I want to indicate that 1) I don't recommend night weaning an infant (under 12 months old) unless mama is pregnant again and finds herself needing that sleep and 2) Until your kiddo understands night/day and you can talk/sign through these issues, a young one likely NEEDS you as a 24 hour parent more than you need the uninterrupted sleep.

But, we're done with the night nursing for now :) YAY!

What a big step, congrats! It took us MONTHS to night wean our toddler, so I think you were pretty lucky with just under a month. :)
