In January DD would nurse at least every hour including the night. Not for too long but still checking in.
This Sunday she went from nap time till bedtime without even asking to nurse! And I've noticed that in the last few weeks she hasn't really been nursing late afternoons or evenings until bed time. She is only nursing 3 or 4 times a night now that her teeth aren't bothering her, too.
She is 20 mos old so it's not like she's a little baby, but does this sound pretty normal for her age? I haven't done anything to try to get her to nurse less, no pacifiers, if I ask her to wait a few minutes because I'm cooking or something I then offer to nurse in the chair with her not just hope she forgets about it.
My goal was at least 2 years so this is probably good that she's down to 8-10 times in 24 hrs by now?
Thanks for any ideas/opinions. I'm not trying to wean her now, but it seems like she is cutting back all on her own. I just want some reassurance that it is OK and she is old enough to be doing this, it doesn't mean she doesn't need me anymore or that our nursing is almost done.
