So I think the time has come to night wean Barrett. He typically nurses 2x at night. We've tried having DH go in to him, but when he manages to get Barrett back to sleep, Barrett wakes up again in less than an hour. When he nurses back to sleep, he usually goes a good 3-5 hours before waking again. I'm pretty sure he is hungry at least some of the time he is nursing, but I figure at 13 months he doesn't need to be nursing 2x a night! Also, I'm headed out of town for three days at the beginning of July without Barrett, and I would rather gently night wean him now than have him go cold turkey then.
So... any words of advice, experience, or just encouragement would be greatly appreciated! I know we aren't going to leave Barrett alone to cry, but I haven't quite decided how drawn out I want to make this process. Thanks!
