Night weaning...

Is there any way to do this without having a grumpy DH in the morning?

DD (14 months) has been sleeping through the night (7:00 to 7:00) about 3 or 4 nights a week. Now that I know she can do it I want to encourage her not to nurse at all at night. I asked DH to get up with her so that she understands that nursing is not an option. He was up for 1 hour last night and super grumpy this morning. I just don't see how I can get her back to bed without nursing her if it's me getting up.

I know, hehe! He's just spoiled from me just sticking a nipple in her mouth all night for the past year. He grumbled something about this being a bad time at work. Isn't it always a bad time at work?

We used Dr Jay Gordon's method of night weaning.

My DH is the same way. Good thing he's a saint during the day!

Re: Night weaning...

Yay! She slept from 7:00 to 6:30 last night! She's been doing that a few nights a week now and it really feels good.

Thanks for the above link. Luckily we don't have to go through all that. She slept with us until about 9 months old and then I started putting her to bed in her crib and she slept much better. She's just still waking up some nights and I want to break the habit of nursing back to sleep.

Yes, thanks for the link.
I'm going to talk to DH about trying it. We are soooooooooo exhausted and I'm drained.
