We have been on the same schedule for months now and I just dont know how to break it. He is still exclusively breastfed and never experianced another putting him back to rest. If my husband won't wake in the night with him to let him know we arent running a 24 hour milk free for all how can I get him out of the habit in the most sothing and less stressful way?

I feel he is doing what is natural and comfortable for him. I feel ppl think I am setting up poor sleeping behaviors. Also that he is overfed. He is 23 lbs. and eats breakfast and dinner meals - a/b 1/2 a jar of earths best stage 2.

The most soothing and less stressful? Let him outgrow it on his own... or gently night wean him when he is older and more able to understand (I started night weaning at 18 months... son night weaned at 2).
