13 month old nurses a million times a day
My lovely, great-gaining 13 month old is an avid nurser. She nurses probably 8-10 times a day and (I'm kind of embarrassed to admit) through both naps and from 3-6am many nights. It's good. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it gets old -- particularly that 3-6am stretch. I know there's no "normal," but if I do nothing and just ride this out, when might she slow down? I really don't want to do mama-led night weaning, but I'm also a little jealous of those people who say they're only nursing their 1 year olds 4 or 5 times a day*.
*yes this question is prompted by a chance meeting with a nursing mom of an 8 month old at the grocery store this afternoon, and yes her baby only nurses 4 times a day now, and yes she seemed very well rested :/
