Re: Qs about extended breastfeeding for milk allergic baby..
I've always heard 3-5 sessions, but I must admit that I don't have a reference for that assertion. Anyway, based on the fact that you cannot supplement your child's "dairy" needs with cow's milk, I'd probably want to nurse a little more frequently than 3 times a day, if possible. Maybe aim for 4, at least until he's a little older, and eating a really good, balanced diet of solids? FTR, eating a lot of solids may not happen by a year- a lot of babies don't transition to a majority-solids diet until closer to 18 months. I don't know what that would do to your going back to work plans, if your baby was 12 months and still not eating much solid food. I guess you'd want to pump, in that situation.
ETA: it's wonderful that you're considering toddler nursing! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have. All the benefits of Nursinv a baby, with very few of the drawbacks.
