Re: Tired of Night Nursing...

My daughter stopped night nursing 3 1/2 months ago. Only because I was getting no sleep at all. My doctor told me she no longer *needed* to nurse at night she just wanted to. I gradually took a feeding time out and replaced it with another way of comforting her. Every baby is different so I do not know what would soothe your baby. Mine really liked her back to be patted. Which turned out to be another bad habit I had to break but at least she was learning to sleep with out nursing. Within a week there was no more night nursing. However, anytime she woke up I had to pat her back. She gradually outgrew that after about a month.
