Heather, with Cadan I used to BF him and then DH would take him away and brush teeth and get him in his sleeping bag and actually lay him in the crib. Maybe something like that would work until you drop the BT feed.
We are still feeding strong 4 times a day, sometimes 3. I am just going with it for now. I had dropped to morning and BT with Cadan by this age.
I was chatting to a mother of a 12mo today who was embarrassed to admit she had only just weaned her DS off the boob. She was happier when I said I was still feeding Colby now at 18mo. Then she felt comfortable to admit that she felt guilty as they did it cold turkey because he was reverse cycling since she returned to work and feeding for 3hrs at night. I told her she had done fabulously to feed him for a year and it felt good that she seemed to take comfort in that
I always feel like I don't know people who do extended nursing and then I find out that people I know do, I just don't see it. It really is so much more common than apparent because it is mainly at home I think.
