Dakotah, 13 months nurses between 2-4 times a night. I'd say 2 times are full actual feedings and the others are just comfort nursing.

My 17 month old nurses anywhere between 0 and 4 times per night. I guess it all depends on how tired he is or how he's feeling. He's got a double ear infection right now so he's been averaging nursing about 4-5 times per night the past week or so. When he's well, sometimes he'll sleep all night, but most nights its at least 2 times. Yes, the joys of nursing a toddler!

Zander has always been a drink & be done kinda baby/kiddo... He has usually nursed to sleep, then once or twice in the night & again when we wake up! At 2 1/2 now, if he doesn't eat much lunch or dinner, then he will want to nurse & nurse & nurse, on & on all night... & I think maybe early pregnancy has also had an effect on the milk, so he seems to not always be as quickly satisfied... ??

I can't really say how often DD nurses, since we co-sleep and I don't remember in the morning!

I would say that it is probably about 6-7x but it is more of an on/off comfort thing.

One of my twins, 14 months, sleeps through the night and never wakes to nurse, my other does occasionally wake up to nurse, but it if she does it's only once. I love those mornings when I wake up and realize I've slept through the whole night, I feel so refreshed (even if my boobs are rock hard ).

My 17-month-old usually nurses 1-2 times each night unless he is sick. He nurses to sleep around 8 p.m. Then wakes anywhere from 11:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. to nurse. Then wake anywhere from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. If he wakes at 5 or 6 a.m. then he goes back to sleep. He also nurses about 3-4 times during the day as well.
