    Default Did night weaning improve your LO's sleep?

    I am slowly becoming exhausted with DS and his night waking. He is 12mths old and generally feeds 1-2 times overnight (sometimes waking more often than that) and then getting up for the day at 5am. I usually just go with the flow of what he wants/needs, rock or feed to sleep, etc and hoped to feed during the night until he dropped it himself. However I am starting to get angry and resentful of it, and I am considering night weaning to see if it helps. Has anyone else tried this with success?

    In my experience when I night weaned (around 8 months) dd started sleeping through.
    It is exhausting isn't it? I followed the sleepeasy solution for weaning night feeds so there was no tears (in our case). It is tough though and we've had bumps along the way. Good luck

    Edit : There are done good tips for night weaning on the troublesome tots website too

    Sorry no. My lot just kept waking. It took more energy to resettle them it would to feed them.

    Yes, I night weaned at 9 months and it made a huge difference.

    DD weaned herself at 16 months. Her sleeping definitely improved from the 3 hourly wake ups (she was only feeding once at 5), to maybe one wake up overnight and into bed for a cuddle/sleep in at 5.

    It worked for us. Dad got up to resettle instead of me getting up to feed. He slept through after 3 nights of this.
