I just thought I would update this thread. We night weaned DS using Jay Gordon's method from Boxing Day last year. We have endured croup, 2 ear infections, a random virus, and molars in this time so it's been a bit of a long road with ups and downs, but when he isn't sick/in pain, DS is now sleeping through most nights! It means I am getting much better blocks of sleep which is great. The actual weaning process went much better than I thought - he accepted it really well once he got the idea.
The next issue is early wakings - he seems to think 4.30am-5am is a perfectly acceptable time to wake up. It's way too early for all of us, but my DD is particularly suffering as she gets woken and doesn't have a day nap any more. The problem is that changing his early waking (if it's even possible) is going to involve a very unhappy baby I think, which will wake her even more......arghhhhh......why can't kids just appreciate how wonderful sleep is?!?!?

what happens if you feed at 4.30? Maybe he is hungry by then and can't sleep?
If it gets you another couple hours sleep it might be worth it for a few months, and they try to extend the time again.
