    Default What time of day does your lo nurse the most?

    Rose is nearly 14 months old and is nursing pretty much constantly in the morning. She starts to slow down in the afternoon, and I work part time in the evenings. I understand that when I am working she may just be making up for lost time in the morning. However, even when I am with her all day she is nursing constantly in the a.m.

    I was just curious what time of day your toddlers are nursing most.

    What do you consider to be morning? Lilah nurses the most through the night. Once she is up for the day, she will not nurse for a couple of hours. She does seem to nurse a lot though from around 4 am to 5 or so, does that count as morning?

    I've been curious about the morning nursing that folks talk about as being one of the hardest to drop when weaning. I am NOT even thinking about weaning. I was just wondering when that morning session is because it doesn't seem like Lilah has it.

    I consider morning from 6 or 7 a.m. until 12. During those hours Rose nurses so much.

    That's what I consider morning too. I try to get Lilah to nurse around 6 or 7 when she wakes up for the day, but she will rarely nurse more than a minute then. Then, if I'm with her I try to get her to nurse again around 8 or 9, but generally it is still a no go unless she's trying to fall asleep. I'm convinced that she has reverse cycled, even on days she is with me and gets most of her calories at night.

    I would definelty say she is reversed cycled. I guess rose is reverse reverse cycled, since I'm away from her in the evening. But even when we are together all day, the morning is still her primetime to nurse.

    K nursed mostly in the evenings (but I work during the day). On the weekends she was an afternoon nurser.

    Lu nurses a lot during the night.

    C is 15 months old and he does most of his nursing in the morning. It seems like once he wakes up from his morning nap, he is recharged and refueled and he doesn't want to stop playing and exploring for anything...not even mama's milk!

    DS nurses mostly in the afternoons, evenings. 1-2x a day, depending.

    he was a reverse-cycler as well.
