How do I go about night-weaning?

I need to get some sleep! My DD is almost 14 months and I am 9 1/2 weeks pregnant and I am exhausted. I need her to sleep through the night! Dh is gone for the next 5-6 weeks so I was thinking this would be a good time to do it, but I am not sure anymore, lol! I think it might be nice to have him as a buffer when it gets hard, but I don't know!

I never had to do this with my son, he weaned himself and was sleeping through the night by about 10 months! Even though he didn't wean until 15 months.

I don't want to wean her all together, I have no problems nursing during the day and nursing TO sleep, just hoping to cut out the nighttime nursings! Anyone have any ideas?????

It will most likely involve some crying....that said, you could begin by cutting the nursing sessions shorter each time and snuggle instead. You could offer water in a sippy if she uses one during the day at all and is familiar with it. It is hard, but will probably only take a few nights if you stick to your guns and she realizes that she's not getting what she wants. That's the way it was with my dd. Good luck!
