This is insane.
Its day five of no night nursing, and we were up until 4am last night. Neither of us are getting nearly enough sleep.
She tries really hard to fall asleep for about an hour or so, but just can't. Sometimes she'll let me snuggle her up. rub her back, or rock in the rocking chair but the last few nights she doesn't want to be touched and just kicks and screams for milk.
I'm nightweaning because she wakes 7-9 times a night to nurse and my body and mood just can't take it anymore. We're using Jay Gordon's gentle nightweaning techniques (and have been at the point where she goes to sleep awake after nursing for a year now - and just moved to no nursing).
How long does it take for an older toddler to become comfortable with not nursing at night? Anyone have any stories? I was expecting 3 nights of really rough times, but its been 5 nights now and last night was worse than the first.
