Night weaning 6 month old?

Kerry - posted on 10/29/2012 ( no moms have responded yet )




Hi! My 6 month old son sleeps from around 7pm to 6 - 7am and wakes once for a night feeding between 2am and 3am. Usually I would nurse him and lay him in his crib and he would fall right back to sleep. Lately he will sometimes toss and turn after I lay him down and have trouble falling back to sleep. It sometimes takes up to an hour for him to fall asleep (he doesnt cry, just tosses and turns and babbles until he falls asleep). I almost feel like the night feed is now interrupting his sleep instead of helping him. Should I try night weaning? I do think he wakes out of habbit but he does take a good feeding so I'm not sure if I should drop it but I don't like it keeping him up so long in the night either. He is not teething so it's not related to that. Anyone have this problem? Any advice would be appreciated!
