Re: Tired of Night Nursing...

Just wanted to say...something that really helped me out...

A friend told me that babies aren't able to get themselves to sleep at night til about 2 years old. When she explained that to me, and the fact that children don't sleep through the night until about 2 years old, it really took a load off because I didn't feel pressured any more to night-wean or CIO...it didn't feel 'right' to me anyway.

Lo and behold, all of my kids have started sleeping through the night by 2 years and I didn't have to do a THING. Most of them started it around 18 months!

Of course, I had to go and get pregnant again...so my son is 2 and I had another one last week (daughter)...so I won't get any good sleep for 2 years. I tell you, after 9 kids nursing isn't *nearly* as fun as it used to be...but it's still better than staggering out of bed at 3am!
