For the first time in dd2's life, she has gone to sleep without any breastmilk. She is nearly 2. Since Christmas I have only been feeding her before bed and through the night. Tonight she had milk from a bottle but never asked for 'num num' until she was nearly asleep and easily distracted. She has never slept through, so what do I do when she wakes up? I have prepared a bottle for her, and am fine to stop breastfeeding if she is too. Should I only offer the bottle or follow her lead? Appreciate any ideas. Also have dd1 who has school in the morning so keen to avoid a lot of crying in the night!

First time she woke up she was happy with the bottle. Next time she only wanted breastmilk. Guess we'll see what happens tonight. Not sure if I should refuse to feed her before bed and only feed her in the night and then try to cut down the night feeds.
