  • No need to wean, just move the nursing away from sleeping. Put the nursing earlier in bedtime routines and replace nursing to sleep with rocking to sleep or something like that. Give it time, it can take some dedication. I had to get my hubby to help me by taking my son and getting him to sleep away fromt he smell of the milk, it worked..we nursed then he was bathed, then changed and then rocked to sleep.
