Does that include nights? He always gets booby before he gets solids for sure. I sometimes do not even bother with solids depending on if he seems full or not from milk.

Whenever he fusses I offer booby first. He has been getting at least one let down per side each time. He used to drink one boob then an hour later or so drink the other. Now he seems to drink both boobs in one sitting and go longer (2-3 hours) in between feedings. He definately night nurses, which does not bother me a bit.

Re: Normal 9 mos Nursing

My LO is 9mo and starting to pull up and walk around furniture just like yours. I find that he is distracted most of the time when he nurses these days. He does latch on at least 4-5 times a day, but it may only be for about 5 min or so and I do try to make sure he nurses before I feed him solids. I think he is pretty efficient at this point, so I don't really worry about the short nursing times. I do pump 4 days a week while I am at work. This helps me to monitor my production.

Yeah mine is also a 5 min per side nurser. He gets his let down and goes to town. He must be getting enough as he is happy and has plenty of soiled diapers.

If nursing thru the night- 6x during day is plenty!
