    Default How often do/did you BF a 9-month old?

    I'm just curious. My 9-month old has been dropping some of her feedings. I think we now BF 6-7 times a day, on demand. It's not all regularly spaced. Sometimes feedings are 2 hours apart or even less, and sometimes she can go 4 hours between feedings (during the day) or even longer at night.

    Is this normal?

    She's healthy, happy and chubby. She eats solids twice a day, but not a whole lot--sometimes she eats 1 oz, sometimes 2 oz. No water or juice.

    Diaper output is within the normal range, although she has fewer wets than when she was 5 or 6 months and was eating 12 times a day (then she pooped and peed all the time).

    thanks! I need to get used to her not nursing so often. It just seems she eats less now than a month or so ago. And I was afraid my supply was going to go down too fast, but so far it's been adapting slowly (I still use one breast per feed, and in the morning I'm very full).
