Re: Normal 9 mos Nursing
My 18mo old is still nursing with solids, and her nursing definitely fluctuates. At 9mo she was very interested in the world around her and probably made up for any lack during the day by night nursing. To be honest, I've never really kept up with how many times she nurses. Wet/dirty diapers (or lack of) are what I watch for, and she nurses on demand.
The other thing you might try is a nice, relaxed nurse-nap. I find this nice for both me and baby, and when she stays latched on she seems to get a few extra let-downs.
