My dd is 15 months old and I still nurse her on demand. She eats table food whenever her siblings or I do, but not very much sometimes only a couple of bites. Occasionally she'll eat more like 2 whole hotdogs or a whole sandwich. Anyway, my question is should I be limiting the amount she nurses and try to feed her more solid foods at this point, or just continue on letting her basically eat and drink what she wants? She's always been a little under average for height and weight, she's a peanut, but has been growing along her own little curve steadily so I'm not too worried about her not gaining as she should right now. At her 12 month appointment she was 19lbs., so she's just over 20lbs. now. (He doctor at her 12 month told me she wanted me to night wean and nurse MAX 3 times a day, preferably only twice but I believe in allowing her to self wean so I didn't follow those instructions)

As far as b/fing goes, JMO, it should stop when the child begins to self wean. There's no reason at over one year old she can't have solid foods and breast milk. If you let her continue, you might be b/fing for years to come or she may self wean in the next few months.
LOL.... this is kinda like adlibs for me tonight!
