night weaning: night 2

Night 2 in my night-weaning series. See also night 1.

More of the same. Brutal. Please let night 3 be better…

  • 6:30PM: Bedtime. Last nursing session of the day.
  • 7:20PM: Woke up and DW went in and got him back down.
  • 8:30PM: Woke up and DW went in and got him back down.
  • 10pM: We went to bed and baby went down with no nursing.
  • 12:30AM: Woke up. DW walked him around a couple of times, trying to get him back to sleep but it didn’t work. At 1AM, she took him to the living room. At 2AM, she tried again and failed. At 2:30AM, she tried again and failed. I got up with him then. He did try to nurse a couple of times and protested when I said no, go-go is night-night. I tried to get him back to sleep at 3AM. Nope. Finally got him down at around 3:45AM.
  • 5:15AM: Up for the day.
  • 6:30AM: First nursing of the day.

Monkey is definitely over-tired today, but is doing okay considering. He nursed a couple of times this morning, one longer session and one short. He is napping now. I’m sure we both should be as well!

We are OMG so tired, but we managed to make it from 6:30PM – 6:30AM with no nursing (and no crying either). On to night 3…

  1. Brutal. Sounds like a long night. I will keep my fingers crossed for tonight.

    I know you didn’t ask for advice, but have y’all thought about transitioning him to his own bed as part of this next step? Does he sleep In his own bed for naps?

      We are thinking that we only want to do one change at a time. He does nap in his crib and he starts every night in his crib and comes in with us when we go to bed (on his first waking). If he’s able to (mostly) sleep through the night after night weaning, we don’t really have a problem with co-sleeping. So we’ll see where we are in a month or so 🙂

    What a night! You must be soooo tired. Stay strong and be really gentle with yourselves as you go through this.
