Well I have lupus and my doctor really wants me to get 7hrs of uninterupted sleep every night if possible. My daughter nurses 1-4 times per night for a few minutes each time. (we co-sleep). Her dentist also wants me to night wean. He says absolutely nothing after brushing, I had rotted front baby teeth by the time I was 18mo so I don't want this to happen to her! So I have a few reasons for night weaning. My problem is that it feels wrong. It takes me an hour to get her back to sleep without nursing. If I were to break down and nurse her she would be back to sleep within minutes. Also I feel so bad. She makes the sign for milk and I tell her no, milk went night night. Help! Any ideas. Also her sleep is so restless, she wakes up every hour or so. I don't know what to do. Any ideas?
