Re: My 7 1/2 month old has started to breastfeed less often
I posted something similar recently. But when I stopped and counted dd was still nursing 6 - 7 times a day. And since she's only awake for 14 hrs or so a day her avg is still 2 - 3 hrs. I had a class this summer and she would go 5 hrs without bm. Wouldn't take a bottle a sippy a straw... But she would have a little dinner at least. (now she'll take ebm straight from the medela storage container). But her wets were good and her solids weren't actually displacing a session.
I also found that dd rarely gets fussy for bfing bc we have such a good rhythm down after 7 mo. So if I waited for her to get fussy it would seem like shed never "ask". She will, however, try to chomp thru my shirt if we are running a little late
