Re: Almost 1 year - Is she nursing enough?
My understanding is that an older baby needs at least 3-4 nursing sessions per day- if they are getting less than that, you need to supplement with formula (when baby is less than 1 year) or whole milk (over 1 year). So 4-5 sounds like a good amount for a baby who is nearly 1. However, I don't think you should be afraid to offer the breast more frequently- perhaps before solid meals, or as a snack in between meals.
