Night Weaning my little one
At what age is it ok to night wean. Second time around with my DD is different than the first child. Any advice? We co-sleep so I know it will be a hard one, but mama needs some sleep!

I don't know but I am interested too! DS is 16 months and has never slept through the night and I am wondering if night weaning will help... I have been sleep deprived for over 2 years :(

I've heard not to night wean before a year, but can't remember where I heard that!

How old is your LO and how often is she nursing at night?

I have no scientific answer, but I had intentions of doing it around 6 months with all 3 of my kids...but it ended up being around 9 months :) I also stopped cosleeping around then too though, making it easier.

I think around 12 months is a good time. It really depends on the child, though.

I heard that it is fine as long as they are eating meals throughout the day, no sooner than 6 months old. Of course DD is now 12 months and we just got to night weaning...:) Some singing, rocking, and back rubbing has been working really well (although she still puts up a bit of a fight) she goes to sleep faster and stays asleep longer!
