Sorry to crash your thread but just wanted to add that having a non milky smelling person help with settling can really help with night weaning. I found my son responded much better/quicker to hubby. When I'd try to settle him he'd immediately insist on milk and would get hysterical very quickly if offered other comfort. Yet he'd be happy to accept to cuddling from dad. I have to believe that it was partially that he associated me with milk and also that he could smell it was available.
