Longest of my babies to BF!!!!

Yay~! Now what?

He's 10 months old, actually going on 11 months old!!!! Wow! I've never made it past 9 months before! His nursing "schedule" or whatever goes like this

6am (sometimes 5am) Nurse in bed with Mama till I dont know when, usually both sides. Im lazy and dont wanna get out of bed so he nurses.

Breakfast is around 7:30 or 8 and he has egg yolks (2) and some of my oatmeal.

11am he naps until 2pm. Then he wakes up and we nurse again (one side) and/or have a jar or so of baby food. The 3rd foods kind (I've never wasted my money on baby food either but we know someone who delivers it so we get alot free. Why not use it?)

Then he's good till dinner time at 5:30p when he either eats what we eat and/or some more baby food. Breads and crackers and cherioos too.

Then at about 8:30p he nurses (one side) and then down to bed for the night.

Does that sound right? He pee's and poo's fine so Im not worried about that. Most everyday he gets a sippy cup with water or rice milk. Its 6 ou and he NEVER drinks it all. Maybe half? He just doesnt prefer it. He prefers straight from the tap. My other kids by this age were having a sippy with every meal (8 ou) and at least on bottle at night.


this is good right? right?

Re: Longest of my babies to BF!!!!

LO#4 is 10 mo, and still prefers boob only. She has absolutely no schedule what-so-ever.. lol. Her day starts like this..
2:30-7:00am on the boob STRAIGHT thru.. both sides flip flopping back n forth.
9:00 am morning nap one side to go down, and one side when waking up around 10am
Around my lunchtime, 12ish, she'll have a few bites of what I'm eating, a few sips of my water. Then will nurse one side, play for about an hour and then nurse other side.
Back to playing or errands or whatever til about 3pm and will nurse both sides to go down for afternoon nap for about 2 hours.
Wake up at 5ish, nurse one side, then dinner with family, may have a few bites of what we're eating, then nurse other side when finished.
8pm bathtime, and then nurse one side while still in towel naked. Or major fit.
9:30 both sides to go down for bed.

* And she's learning how to walk, so if there's a bump or a fall, right to the boob she goes, on her own. My mom giggles every time she sees Aubrey lay herself down in my lap when I pick her up when she's upset.

I still can't count how many times she nurses a day.

DC#1 was a AM, noon, and PM nurser with meals by now, DC#2&3 were on sippee cups with BM at day care with meals, and to go to bed.

Sound's like he's doing great! Congrats on continuing nursing him! My boy is 13 monthes today and still doesn't eat very much food or drink much water yet. Seems like my girls were eating and drinking alot more at this age, so I guess they are all different.

Re: Longest of my babies to BF!!!!

Sounds great! COngrats on the continued nursing!

My first son didn't eat much in the way of solids until probably 15+ months. (He started them about 9 months.) My second son is still exclusively nursing. Both did fine. Mama's milk is wonderful and pretty much all they need for a good year. Anything else before a year is more about experimentation. You're doing great!!
