I completely intend to breastfeed beyond the first year, but have a couple of questions. How often do they need/want to nurse past age 1? I work 3 days a week and pump while I'm at work- she will drink 12 oz while I'm at work. (She's 9 1/2 months now) Do I still need to pump while at work? Will she still need the bottles while I'm gone? And what about staying overnight at Grandma's? (She does this about once every other month) What about bottles then? I am for sure going to continue breastfeeding, but am hoping that once she's over a year old I can have a little more freedom. She doesn't eat a ton of solids now, maybe once a day, should I start increasing this now? Just wondering how this nursing into toddlerhood thing works. Thank you!
