Re: How often do your toddlers nurse?
My daughter nursed frequently from the very beginning- usually quick nursing sessions many times per day and night.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to continue nursing him into toddlerhood, but I suspect he would have been one of those that only nursed a few times per day and night since that's the pattern he established early on and that's how he takes his bottles now.
I think it's related to both personality and metabolism. My daughter has always been petite and extremely energetic. My son was born on the larger side and slept a lot more and until his health issues seemed on a path to stay that way.
