I'm not looking to wean her from the breast completely or make her sleep in her own bed all the time, but dd is now 19 months and I would like to move towards no more night feeds and possibly starting the night in her own bed (or at least for naps).

However I'm not sure how to go about it without traumatizing her (and me!). Ds was a lot younger when he stopped having night feeds and he wasn't bf and took a dummy so it just seemed a lot easier for him.

My DD was a little younger when I moved her into cot, but I just let her fall asleep on the bed with me then transferred her when she was in a deep sleep. She never seemed traumatised waking up in the cot anyway, and started sleeping through the night not too long after. When she woke I would bring her in with me, the wake ups just gradually got less and less. She's over 2 now and remains boob obsessed however if anyone has any weaning tips!

I've also heard good things about Jay Gordon's night weaning plan, might be worth a look.

Thanks Rinceoir, I'll have a look at that plan. I've started making her wait longer between feeds during the day which mostly just causes lots of tears at the moment but fingers crossed she will get used to it soon and I can start translating that to night time. Good to know that your dd wasn't too upset by the changes.
