We are in the process of nightweaning with Dr Jay Gordon's method right now. I wouldn't try both the nightweaning and crib at the same time. That would just be cry it out.
I don't know how it would work for the early hours though. The method has you start with a 7 hr stretch. So for us, DS gets to nurse all e wants until 11pm. The key though is after the initial part where you are unlatching him early, is having DH take over all nighttime parenting in that 7 hr window. It might be best to start of the night before DH's first day off cause the first night might be rough. But remember, crying in the arms of a parent who loves you is NOT the same as CIO. Baby may be mad and confused, but not scared. He'll have Dad.
