Re: night weaning...
I wanted to just give some encouragement and support as one who as BTDT. It can and DOES get better! You can teach your baby what you expect, as far as appropriate behavior, in a gentle and loving way and you will be teaching them to be considerate and gentle at the same time! Two birds with one stone! Woo-hoo!
Here is a link to kellymom.com (every nursing mom's best friend for sound advice and encouragement) that talks about teaching "nursing manners": http://kellymom.com/ages/older-infan...ing-manners-2/
Here is another link that I found helpful: http://kellymom.com/parenting/velcrochild/
I found it really helpful for me to look at things from my child's perspective (since I'm the adult and he doesn't yet have the ability to do this) and I realized that by having realistic, healthy expectations of my child, I could be more patient, and I was able to find ways to meet both of our needs while maintaining a peaceful sleeping experience for all of us.
Best wishes to all you. I hope you find what you are looking for.
