Weaning My 18 Month Old Still Waking Up At Night

Georges mom - January 10

My 18 month old likes to nurse to go to sleep and will also wake up in the middle of the night to nurse. I believe that if I can get him uninterested in nursing, he will sleep better. Is there something I can rub on my nipples that will taste bad enough for him to lose interest? I don't feel my milk come down anymore and he has a pacifier to suck on, which he also likes. Don't want to be cruel to him, but I need sleep and he needs to fall asleep himself. Thanks!

Dear Georges Mom- IMy 18 month old also nurses to sleep and still wakes in the evening. I am desperate for sleep as well. The advice I have received from many mothers was to try lemon on the nipples. Also, band-aids. With the band-aids it was important that your son understnad the concept of a boo-boo and explain mommy has one too. Neither of these suggestions have fooled , nor deterred my son, however both were successful for my friend (3 children) and sister-in law (2 children). Good luck to you.

I'm just curious to know if you found a way yet? I'm in the same boat with my 17 month old but he doesn't like a pacifier so I'm at a loss.
