It's about that time...

I've decided to wean Brayden. He has gotten in the habit of nursing to sleep and now he can't soothe himself when he wakes at night. He was trying to nurse before dinner last night and I kept putting him down on the floor. So he walked over to the couch,picked up the boppy and brought to me, saying "eh?" LOL It was the cutest thing! So I caved and nursed him a little.

Anyway last night I started the routine of bath,story,song,lovey and good night. He cried for about 40 minutes before he fell asleep. I went in after 5 minutes,then 10 and so on. The problem is he wakes up around 11:30 every night without fail. After I'm asleep it's so hard not to give in and nurse him. I hate listening to him cry and I'm so tired I just want to put him in my bed. I need to get him sleeping better because Adam and I are going on a trip next month and I want him to sleep good for my sister. *sigh* I've just got to be strong! ;-)

My youngest is the same way, not bf'ing but she still wakes up at least once for a drink of water. It's so much easier to just give it to them and get back to sleep than it is to stay up and listen to them cry it out. Good luck trying to wean during this next month. You can do it!
