I just bumped my 7-month-old up to 2 solid feedings per day. She seems to really love it! No issues and has not rejected anything I've offered thus far (although I got some funny looks over the avocado).
Right now, she's getting about 2 tablespoons of food twice a day--once in the morning and once in the evening. I've tried counting how many times she nurses, but seriously I don't know how! Sometimes it's for 3 minutes, sometimes it's for 20. During the day, I'm going to guess about 6 times. Overnight is blurry since I'm half asleep during those sessions so am not always aware of when it's comfort sucking versus actual eating. Let's put it this way--she is velcroed to me me all night!
My question...what's the average # of nursing times for a 7-month-old, and how long does an average nursing session last. Do those 3-minute ones count as feeding?
I just don't want to dry up!!!
