Re: Does your toddler nurse ALOT still as well?
My 23 month old nurses about every 1-3 hours, 24 hours a day. Once in awhile, he'll go 4 hours, but he has to be away from me for that to happen, which is a rarity. He was late to be able to handle solids, but now he eats a fair amount of solid food and still nurses frequently.
If you are wanting to reduce her frequency, offering solids more often, or just before you think she's going to want to nurse may help. You may want to consider, however, if you are not troubled by the frequency, just letting it be. Sometimes emotional, physical and/or cognitive developments can lead to an increase in nursing -- something comforting and healthy you can offer during tough times. Frequent nursing in a toddler, in and of itself, is no cause for concern unless it is not working for you.

Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
