Hoping to get some good ideas or advice.
My Matthew is 17 months old. Up to this point he has been breastfed on demand and we are bedsharing. The last few weeks have been quite rough and my husband and I would like to transition him into his own bed and I am hoping to night wean, although that I am not as concerned with. I personally think once he is in his own bed he won't really be waking up much, I think it's the "all night buffet" right in his face that causes a lot of his waking.
Does anyone have some good tips? Full on crying it out is not for us, but I am not against a little bit of fussing themselves to sleep.
His sleep schedule has been messed up the last week or so, but he does have a pretty regular schedule. He naps anywhere between 11 and 12, and sleeps for an hour and a half to two hours. Then he goes down for the night between 8 and 9 and besides his half awake snacking he sleeps through the night until about 7am. He just won't do any of these things without nursing to sleep in my bed.
