Night weaning. It’s a popular topic around The Baby Sleep Site®! Countless parents have contacted us over the years and asked, “Is my baby ready for night weaning?”
The answer, of course, varies from baby to baby. So much depends on age, but we can’t offer a simple ‘if your baby is this age, then yes, it’s time for night weaning’. Because we have to account for health factors, too – some babies simply need night feedings longer than others, especially if they have medical problems. And parent preference plays a huge part in this as well – some moms want to hang on to night feedings even after they’re no longer “necessary”, simply because they love that special time with their child!
The night weaning question has come up often enough recently, however, that we thought it was time we brought you this great tool to help you get a better sense of whether or not you and your baby are ready to night wean. Take this simple, 5-question quiz, and learn whether or not night weaning is something you can consider right now.
