How often does your 12 month old nurse?

My DS is turning 1 year in a couple of weeks, and we're still going strong with BFing. He usually nurses 4-5x a day and maybe 1-2x at night, and eats 3 solid meals (and sometimes a snack as well). I'm very happy with the way things are, and (most of the time ) am not eager for DS to wean any time soon. I'm mostly just curious what is "normal" for other mamas...

My DD just turned 1 and she still nurses several times a day. She still wakes up at least once most nights as well.

Re: How often does your 12 month old nurse?

I voted 1-2x a day..... but that's not coutning night times.

My DS is will be 16 months old on the 19th of this month.

He usually nurses down for his nap, if he wakes up and I feel that he needs to go back to sleep, then I'll nurse him back down again...sometimes he'll nurse one or two other times during the day. If he doesn't feel well, of course he nurses more.

We co-sleep and he is an "all night nurser" who STILL usually nurses 3-4 times a night.

It's great that you're still nursing. I had to wean my oldest off at 8 months because he kept biting me really hard and nothing I could do would convince him to stop. He was already eating solids and supplimenting with formula. I wish now that I would have stuck through it.

I plan on letting Noah self-wean. I may wean him off around 2yrs old if he hasn't finished yet, but I'm not sure.

Great job with your nursing... and keep going until one or both you feel the need to stop.

God bless,
Michelle

Re: How often does your 12 month old nurse?

My ds is 13 months at 12 months is when I noticed a huge shift in his nursing frequency. He went from nursing 6+ a day/night to 3 a day and none at night. Now he nurses when he wakes up in the afternoon and right before bed. Some days he has an extra feeding late afternoon also. My sister has twins and they are still around 6+
