How do I wean an 18 month old?

He had been just nursing before bed for a while. Now he wants it all the time and he's waking up in the middle of the night wanting to nurse. I wouldn't mind if he'd go back to just nursing before bed, but this is very draining. He pitches a fit if I won't nurse him and I don't see how I can go back to just once a day now that he's decided he wants to all the time. Any tips?

  • He might be going through a growth spurt, it may just be a short phase.

    I'd stick it out for a bit longer, and if nothing changes, then if you feel you need to go back to just once a night - then do that, as smoothly as you can.
