How can I wean nursing at bedtime?

There are a couple of different possibilities when thinking about weaning nursing at bedtime. If, for instance, you want to wean nursing altogether, you can reduce it gradually (reducing it by about one minute each night). If you still want to nurse but you don’t want to nurse so close to when he falls asleep that he’s nursing to sleep, then you can move nursing to the beginning of the routine, or before the routine altogether. This makes it less likely that a little one will fall asleep while nursing, promoting healthy sleep habits.
