Re: How often do you nurse a 10+ month old??

My son weaned himself during an illness with RSV when he was almost 12 months old, but before that he was still nursing/taking a bottle about 4 times a day. With both my girls I nursed them until they were 18 months old, and it was about the same with them. My youngest still woke up during the night to nurse all they way up until she was almost a year old. But- both my girls had some food reactions and so they really didn't start on solids until between 10 and 11 months- so them nursing 4 to5 times a day was probably a little unusual since it was still their primary food source. You may want to cut out the juice drinks and only offer water. Juice can often give so much sugar- even when diluted- that it really decreased their drive to want to eat.
