Did you breastfeed on demand the whole time you nursed or only when baby was real young?

  • I nurse on demand. My little one is 17 months. He mostly gets his fill during the night and doesn't think about it too much during the day.

  • i breastfed on demand for about a year. after that i usually nursed him when he asked, but sometimes would say "in a little while" and then he would play and forget about it.

  • not sure why you are asking but just because we bf on demand, doesn't mean she's attached to me all day. generally, that part slows down in the first half of their first year of life and may pick up around growth spurts, teething, and milestones.
