Re: Is anybody night-weaning?

Just have to say that the chapter on Night-Weaning in the toddler/preschooler version of NCSS is AMAZING. Great stuff, really practical, and IT WORKS!!!!

I'm all about meeting a child's needs but (don't flame me LOL you all know I'm a breastfeeding advocate to the end) there does come a time when they really and truly DON'T NEED to nurse at night...sometimes they and you sleep better and be happier people during the day if they are night-weaned. The age varies a LOT, it depends on your child...but when you're resenting it, and they're getting lots of nutrition from other sources, maybe it's time to make changes. It doesn't have to be all or nothing, kwim?
