Thanks, it wasn't too bad for the first night. Dp did shush pat and popped his dummy in. He woke a lot but wasn't as hysterical as I expected.

Night 2 tonight hope its a little better.

if u feel ready it will be fine. we have just night weaned dd 15m as i have been very ill and just too ill to get up to her in the night so dp has done all the nights. took about 5 nights in total and there was a fair bit of crying but she had her dad to comfort her and cuddle her but needs must sometimes and i physically was bed ridden so just couldn't do it.
she has been sleeping thru all night since
good luck. if u are ready he will be fine x

We have decided to night wean ds, not least because he has given me a few sleepy nips but we all need our sleep too.

The plan is that I will feed him now which I an doing and if he wakes between now and 6ish its dp's job to settle him. Then after 6 I will feed him again.

Just feeling a bit emotional at the thought of ignoring my baby's crying when I know its me he wants.

Tell me it will be ok.

He is one on Tuesday BTW.
