How often is normal for breastfeeding a 9 month old? My dd will be 9 months this saturday and I am still nursing her every 2-3 hours. I am wondering if this is more often than normal. I am starting to feel a little like I can't get away ever. I know it doesn't last forever, but I'm wondering if this frequent nursing is normal at this age. She has always slept great through the night, since she was about 2 months old...right now she sleeps from about 8pm until 7am. At one point I thought maybe she just needed to eat more during the day since she was not waking up at night, but I'm not sure now.
She's not eating a lot of food, so maybe that's part of it. We started food at 6 months, but she was having a hard time pooping, a little constipated and it was hard like adult poop, so we backed off the food and went back to full time nursing maybe around 7 months until about 8 months. Now we are back on the food, stage 1 and at first I only fed her half a jar of the stage 1 and now we are up to a full jar once a day of stage 1. Should I be feeding her food more often and possibly nursing less?
