HUGS Mama! My 16+ month old nurses anywhere between 3 and 8 times per night, depending on the position of the earth, moon, the tides, etc. LOL
I read in one of my books, either Sears or NCSS that most babies don't sleep "through the night" until after age two. That made me feel better!

Re: How often does your 12 month+ DC nurse at night?

I would have said "zero" as well cause my DD sleeps thru. She's 18 mo. and nurses 3-4x during the day. Occasionally if something else wakes her she'll nurse back to sleep, but that's really rare. (BTW, we don't cosleep. That could have something to do with it. Not saying you need to change what you're doing, just saying that could be a key difference.)

I feel you on this one. My 16 month old nurses anywhere from 2-6 times a night. I'd say average 3 or 4. Sometimes I am not sure though b/c I did ask dh the other day if when he gets up if I am "hanging" out and he said probably half the time.....so maybe ds nurses more then I think too lol.

I can't vote either. My 16 month old stopped nursing at night around 11 months. So Zero for me!

Okay well my 5-6 times was more of a guess from the nights that I have conciously tried to keep track because I am "hanging out" most of the night.

Re: How often does your 12 month+ DC nurse at night?

Of four all stopped night nursing around 18-22 mos. except for one who just nursed once at night, but it lasted ALL night. After a while I got really touched out. I told her that they were night night and she just accepted that like it was only to be expected. They sometimes start nursing more at night because there is too much to see and do during the day to nurse all the time.

From 12 months-last week (18.5 months), I swear... he nursed more than as a newborn. Last week, he started nursing less at night... like nurse at midnight, 3AM, and maybe at waking...

I voted 5-6 times, but that is an average night...on bad nights it is much more often. DS is 14 mos...

Well, I voted 3-4, but honestly, that’s 3-4 latch-ons. Some nights, I wake up 2-3h later and she’s STILL Latched on sucking away
