night weaning update #6

arrg. we are losing direction with the whole night weaning thing. every early morning (think, 4 a.m.) this week the B has either been fully awake, or sleeping peacefully with my boob in his mouth. neither one of those are good.

the manny is getting worn out. its been more than a month. i am having creeping sensations of guilt (what if i am teaching him not to need me?), the B is increasingly fighting sleep and rarely goes down by the breast anymore.

these are the avenues we (finally!) talked about:
-offering him a nighttime water bottle
-feeding more solids/encouraging more evening nursing sessions

wish us luck...more to come
