I breastfeed my daughter. She's 9 months old and I've always fed her at bedtime for her to go to sleep and at nap times. Well at her last dr appointment they told me that I shouldn't do that anymore. So now I have to try to break the habit. I was reading on one website that I don't have to cut it out right away but slowly work on it. It said that I should cut out the bedtime feeding first and then she should start falling back to sleep on her own in the night. But it didn't say anything about nap feedings. Should I cut those out right away too? My husband works nights so he sleeps during the day and if I don't have to cut those out for another month would be great because we move in a month and he'll be gone during the day. Any suggestions or advice? Thanks!

I think that the pediatrician is wrong. My daughter self-weaned at 23 months; bedtime was the last feeding she dropped. I strongly recommend the book and website Baby Led Weaning: www.babyledweaning.com
We never did CIO, and have a very well adjusted 14 year old.
