    Default Nursing holiday?

    Curious about other momma's experiences. DD is about to be 13 months. We've had a bunch of stress in the past month. It seemed like our nursing was slowing down a bit, until today. She has nursed ALL DAY LONG. She hasn't nursed this much since she was a newborn. She ate some solids and was interested, but seems to just NEED momma today. I know she's teething, working on walking, and trying to tell me about the whole world, so major milestones are here.
    So, you 1yr + nursing moms, do they do this from time to time? Not complaining, SO glad I can still comfort her like this, just wondering.

    yes, we have days where DD wants to do nothing but nurse. Totally normal in my opinion!

    Especially at your LO's age. Around 13-15 months many babies can have a streak where they nurse like newborns again. Mine did. But it passes just like every other phase. It's normal though.
