The answer to these questions are different for every mom and baby. Some older babies are content to nurse once or twice a day, while others nurse as frequently as newborns. Most fall somewhere in between these two extremes.
So what does breastfeeding beyond one year of age look like? How often do these babies nurse? How long are the feedings typically? Do they continue to nurse before solids, like the books say to do when first starting solids? Or does breastmilk become more of a beverage rather than a food at that point?
