For those of you with LOs that are one or older, how old are they and how often do they nurse? Just curious. :)

My 2.5 year old twins nurse in the morning, before nap time, after nap time, and before bed. My 1 year old rarley goes 2 hours without nursing still, so around 12 times a day.

My ason is almost 4 & no longer nurses but when he was 1 I still nursed on demand which was more than 6 or 7 times a day & 3 or 4 times a night. When I had to wean him at 2 he was nursing 2-3 times a day & 2-3 times at night.

22 months. I really don't keep track. She nurses whenever she wants during the day unless I'm busy doing something. She nurses maybe once or twice in the middle of the night.

My daughter is 20 months. She nurses on demand still...usually when she wakes up and before going to bed, whenever we come home from sometimes before we leave as well. And here and there otherwise. Our pediatrician wants me to limit her to about 3 times a day max because she doesn't weigh as much as she'd like..she said she wants solids..not liquids to be the majority of what goes in her. But I'm not going to limit her feedings. She still eats when we eat and then some... Sorry, I guess that just came out.
