10 m.o. mostly BFing . . . I'm hungry all the time!

My 10 month old gets most of her nutrients and all of her fluids from nursing. She does have maybe two purees a day, plus finger foods (which wind up on the floor and under her butt as much as they do in her mouth). She is not interested in water from a cup. My first daughter was in DC and used to taking from a bottle, so transitioning her to water in a soft-sippy cup wasn't hard.

Lately I've been noticing I'm starving all the time. I'm figuring a 10 month old needs more calories than, say, a 3 month old, so that's why? I have to eat a granola bar, sometimes two, when I wake up to nurse her in the middle of the night.

Plus she's nursing 6-7x per day still. I'm hoping to wean her sometime around 14 or 15 months, but she isn't going longer stretches between feeds like her older sister did, so I'm not sure how to get from here to there.

Any advice?
