my youngest is 22 months and I was ready to wean him months ago but he's not ready. he's weaned for the most part during the day the problem is night. we want to get him to stop nursing and sleep in his own bed. my bf wants to just put him to bed with his sippy and close the door so he's forced to sleep in there. now ihad to do that for a week with my first just cause he didn't wanna sleep in his own bed. but there are three problems that come up beacause he shares his room with his brother
1.put him to bed before the oldest and the oldest will wake him up
2.put them to bed at the same time and they will play rather then sleep
3.put him to bed after and he wakes the older older one up

please does any one have any ideas I'm so frustrated with this.

sounds like you have it worked out :) I am at the point myself with my daughter of just giving her a kiss and leaving too. She fights sleep and has to learn when it's bed time it's bed time

I finally got frustrated started doing the same routine with him at the same time as his older brother. make there beds brush there teeth read a book then I give him his sippy a kiss good night and I close the door last night was night 3 he screams for a few minutes his brother tells him to go to sleep that he will see me in the morning and alls quiet till morning

I had to sleep train and wean at once since she always nursed to sleep. Stop nursing for sleep, it's hard, there will be tears but they need to learn to sleep. I would read and cuddle her during the freak outs. I weaned in 4 days at 18 months old. I taught her to sleep without nursing in my bed since we co slept and now she is sleeping in her own bed. Although I do have to sit there and tell her to lie down and sleep until she does sleep, it is still sleep in her own place.
