I have talked about being ready to night wean and actually beginning the process so I feel as though I should give an update on our progress. We have had some very rough nights but it’s been a little over three weeks and for the past week and a half things have been great!
Every other night or so he has been sleeping through the night until about 6 or 7 and then he’ll nurse and then go back to sleep until between 8:30-9:30. It’s been heaven! On the nights that he does wake up once or twice he has been very easy to get back to sleep. No thrashing around and having a fit, just a quick rock for a minute or two and he’s back to bed. I was starting to feel like I would never have another full night’s sleep again!
At 19½ months he is now nursing about three times a day. Early in the morning, before his nap and before bed. It feels so strange to be approaching the end of this part of our journey after so long but I am pretty ready. He’s not quite yet but we’re getting closer.
