    Default how often does your 9 month old nurse?

    Did you start solids too? How often does he eat? When/how many times does he nurse? (just curious)

    At 9 months, my first LO was nursing about 12 times a day, and not eating more than a tsp. or two of solids. My second LO was nursing about 10-12 times a day and eating solids 2-3 times a day- mostly cheerios and table food from our plates.

    At 9 months, my DS was just getting into solids. I offered 3 times a day, but he didn't always want them. He was nursing at least 5 times a day--when he woke up, before naps, before bed, and once during the night. He would often "snack" in between those, especially if he wasn't all that into the solids I gave him.

    at 9 months DS1 was nursing about 8-9x in a 24 hour period and getting bottles of EBM 3x a day at daycare. He was also eating solids, but not much, more playing around.
