    Default Dropping lunchtime nursing in 15 month old- need advice

    Hi All,

    My lo is 15 months old and nursing on demand day and night and eating lots of solids. She is at a daycare now and they feed her two full meals and two snacks during the day. I work full time but have been nursing her at around noon each day.

    I think I'm ready to drop the midday nursing. I don't think she [I]needs[I] that mid day nursing, especially since she eats so well at daycare and although I love my time out with her for a few minutes, I would like my work time back too as work has gotten a little more complicated lately.

    I have gone to nurse her once or twice and because she was napping, I didn't get to. So my question if I want to drop this nursing, should I do it slowly, or do you think I can I just pick a date and stop going to see her at lunch?

    Any thoughts?

    Hi mama, I think at this point you can just stop. You can take your pump to work with you just in case you feel full but I really, really doubt that it will be a problem at this point. Especially if you didn't have a problem the days that she slept through that midday nursing.

    Elizabeth,

    I had the same situation and I did what you did, I slowly stopped the mid-day nursing except when they (I have twin girls) were sick or had a cold, then I would nurse during the day while in day care. Too many germs there not to!
