If in doubt, wean. Typical male response
Men don't get it b/c they're not wired quite right

It won't last forever. I promise! Her molars could be bothering her. They really hurt.

We've gotten to this point with my 9 month old too. That, with full-time work, new pregnancy, school, etc, we were just going crazy! We decided the best thing for us was to stop co-sleeping and teach DS to sleep in his crib for the first time. It's been 2 weeks and he pretty much sleeps through the night now. I nurse him before bed and before I go to work in the morning now. 2 weeks ago he was nursing anywhere from 3-8 times during the night.

Don't wean until *you* want to...but I will say that with ds once I weaned at 14 months, he started sleeping through and has only been up during the night a handful of times since (he's almost 3 1/2). That wasn't why I weaned...but it was definately a welcome extra! I hope it's just a phase for you. For us, night nursing became the only way ds would go to sleep...and that's a hard cycle to break! Good luck!

Send him to my house for a couple nights. My fully-weaned-for-over-a-year 3.5yo STILL doesn't sleep through the night. Weaning definitely does NOT mean babies will sleep through the night!! (I hoped it would though. Its been more than four years since I've slept through the night, so I totally get the desire for it!!)

I wish I knew lol My 18 month old has only slept through on a few occasions. For a while when she was about fifteen months she was sleeping through... that lasted about a week lol. Then she went back. I've adjusted. It doesn't even phase me any more.. the sleep deprivation, that is.
