Hi ladies! Nathan is now 14 months old, and nurses 3 times during waking hours. At night, he can sleep through the night, wake once to nurse, or wake twice, or three times max. Its different every night depending on what's going on. (usually he nurses more when teething and sick) But during the day, its a consistent three times. Morning, after his nap and before bed. Lately, Ive been noticing that during waking hours, he doesnt really ask me for milkies. It used to be, that when he wanted to nurse, he would just stand in front of me and whine really badly till I put two and two together, lol. But now, Im the one asking him if he wants milkies. The only time he ever really seems to NEED it is at night and before bed. Am I the one forcing this nursing relationship? I would love to get it to the point where he's only nursing during the day and sleeping through the night, but i know that is unrealistic. But what about during the day? Should I even offer it? Should I wait for him to come to me? I have a friend who has an 18 month old daughter and she said her daughter demands it like 4-5 times a day still! Thoughts?
