Re: Through the night weaning...
She probably has an association with the boob and sleeping, which is normal for many kiddos. I was experiencing the same sleep cycles with DD. I recently have started to "night wean". I don't let her CIO, but I do have her cry in my arms while I rock, sing and rub her back until she falls back asleep. It was rough the first night, but quickly got better and it has led to at least one 7 or 8 hour chunk of sleep! I know this may be tough since you didn't want to wake your son, but letting her cry a bit so she realizes it's time to sleep might really be the only option if you want longer sleep periods. I found this to be the only way to get more sleep! Good luck mama!!!
