I'm having a dilemma! I hope someone here can help very, very soon!
My 16 month old has been sleeping in our room and bed since she was born. She does a pretty good job of sleeping from about 7 til 11:30/midnight in her crib. sometimes she wakes and cries, but falls back to sleep. Once we go in the room to bed (we share a room) she wakes and we bring her into bed with us. She then proceeds to wiggle and nurse ALLLLLL night long. We've never tried any night weaning techniques.
Now...we're moving to another state in a couple of weeks. Part of me is excited to finally have a 2 bedroom, but part of me is wondering if we need to save our money and stick with a 1 bedroom! I feel like it's time for her to be in her own room and sleeping the whole night in her room. Maybe without us coming in the bedroom to interrupt her sleep, she sleep longer on her own, but I'm not counting on that. SO...my question(s) is/are: what do we do when we move?
Should I just plan on putting her in the crib to start with, then sleeping in the new room with her for a few nights, letting her continue to nurse on demand all through the night like she does now, then try night weaning? Or should we do night weaning right away? OR should we try night weaning while we're still in this familiar apartment before we move in a couple of weeks.
I'd appreciate any advice/help as soon as possible since we're sending in an application for an apartment tomorrow morning! eek!
