Ok I'll try to make this short! My daughter is 21.months old and I still breastfeed her. She still sleeps with me and daddy. I really want her to sleep on her bed and to be able to self soothe. We went to talk with a specialist and she suggested I stop breastfeeding all together. Slowly but eventually stop...like within two weeks. I told her that I did not want to stop breastfeeding and it's like it went through one ear and right out the other! It took me quite a little convincing my boyfriend about the benefits of breastfeeding and explained to him that me and Malika are not ready to quit. But within 35 minutes of talking with her, he switched right back to telling me I need to stop! So my main question is, how do I night wean my daughter and have her sleep in her bed WITHOUT stopping breastfeeding? Is it possible??

the whole "wait until the sun comes up" is pretty interesting! I think I'll give that a try! I just want her to be a happy baby even if I'm not necessarily around at night! I know it's not going to last forever and I want to absorb every moment of her wanting to keep that connection with me!
