Oops.

So my 11 month old is pretty much only nursing before naps (1-2 times a day) and to sleep at night and maybe 1-2 times at night. We co sleep and I have always nursed him to sleep. Occasionally he will stop nursing, roll over and go to sleep, but often he likes to comfort suck for 20-30 minutes. How do I get him to sleep without nursing him? I would like to wean him in te next couple months (ideally by 14 months).

Does he use a paci? Mine was such a comfort nurser before i went to daycare that i would latch him off when i could tell he was done and pop the paci in.

My 15 month old still nurses, but I would think if you wean him, he will simply learn to sleep a different way. Maybe start patting him to sleep so you can replace nursing with solely patting when you are ready.

No. We didn't want to give him a paci. At 2 months I was very sick and we tried to introduce one, but he wouldn't even keep it in his mouth. Now he just chews on it like it is a teether.
