How old is baby?  And night feeding are never a "no no".  I'm 27 years old and get up to eat every single night.

Um how old is baby? If under a year doc is SO wrong! Babies wake at night for a reason.

Ignore doc but know you can night wean, google dr jay Gordon's night weaning method.

Don't take breast feeding advice from a pediatrician. They have no breast feeding education.

Feed baby whenever you and he likes. If you want to night wean then I'm sure someone can give you links for good night weaning advice.

Go to kellymom.com and search ways to wean gently if you want to wean. Otherwise, continue feeding as often as you are comfortable doing so.

There is never a time when a feeding is a "no-no."

Do you cosleep? If you feel guilty then don't do it mama! 

You can night wean though if you want.

You do realize night weaning is only gonna do just that.... Wean at night. Doesn't mean your baby won't wake often. Cosleep!!!!!!!!

you don't HAVE to start weaning him yet, many moms in here nurse until 2, 3 and sometimes past 4. It's ok to nurse him at night, idk why your pedi says it isn't. You can breastfeed when and how long you and your baby want
