Re: 8 mos old nursing less
The reason you read that most 8 month old babies need at least 8 feedings per day is that most of them do. But your baby is not most babies! You know her best, and if she is very clearly telling you that she doesn't need that many nursing sessions, it's okay- as long as she is gaining weight normally.
Are you still working on eliminating the pacifier?
