I stopped nursing at night and gave him bottles (they still had BM) instead. He could drink faster and didn't get up as often for the bottle. Plus my husband could do it too. Then when he got a little older and didn't need anything if he woke up he didn't expect me to nurse him if I just went in and comforted him.
That's what worked for me anyway. Good luck!
