Last week, my friend, Sterling, joined me on the podcast and we talked about why her one-year-old might still be waking in the night to nurse.

My friend and I were sending Marco Polo messages back and forth several weeks ago and she mentioned that her almost one-year-old was still waking in the night to nurse, and she was wondering how to wean her from those night feedings.
