We are going to start "operation night weaning" tonight--and I was hoping to get some feedback as to personal experiences on how to best way to accomplish this both for us and for my daughter, Madeline.
I was OK with night feedings (she got up once a night, nursed and went back to bed), and in Nov she actually STTN a few times--but then teething started, and she started getting up 2-3 times per night again. We thought it would stop when teething stopped, but no, still going on. I have been getting horrible migraines because I am so tired and am like a zombie, so with the OK from her ped, I am going to try and night wean her.
I read up on the night weaning info on Kellymom, and over the past month have tried the following things to no avail:
1). Increasing day feedings, 2). Trying to nurse in quiet, dark areas to maximize her feedings, 3). Increasing feedings right before bed, 4). Having my husband give a bottle of water, 5). Me going in and just holding her.
