My DD will be one in a few weeks (to my amazement!) and her nursing patterns have seemed to change in recent weeks. While I seem to still expect her to want to nurse every 2.5 hours during the day (as she has since she was an infant), she's way more comfortable going 3-4 hours. Meanwhile, she's expressing WAY more interest in solids and feeding herself anything she can get her hands on!
Is it normal at this point to only nurse 5 times in a 24-hour period? I SO want to keep nursing well past a year, and am worried that DD is losing interest. On the other hand, I want to listen to and trust her instincts.
I notice that a lot of moms talk about how they're still going strong at age one (and beyond!), but I'm curious about what that actually means in terms of how often your LOs are nursing and for how long. Are DD and I still "going strong"?
THANK YOU wonderful LLL moms! This is my first-ever post, but I've been an avid reader of the forums for almost a year now!
