I recently started "sleep training" my 6 month old with the Happy Sleeper "Sleep Wave" technique and it has worked great. He goes to sleep at 6 PM then wakes up at 11 PM and 2 AM to nurse for 5 minutes, which I am in the (early) stages of weaning 30 seconds every other day.
The book says that you can get the baby up after 11 hours, so a 6 PM bedtime means I get him up at 5 AM if he gets up. However, He's been waking up a third time at 4 AM, and I found that if I nurse him for a long time, he will often sleep until 7.
Am I doing the right thing by allowing him this long feeding at 4 AM when my goal is to not feed at night anymore? My current plan is to wean the 2 AM feeding and then the 11 PM feeding first.
