Hello. My 16-month-old daughter nurses just about every hour unless we're out, and about 5 (yes, FIVE) times a night. When I awake in the morning she is already nursing and won't stop until I get up to get her breakfast. (I am a single mom and when we get up I can only give her a small snack while I help my oldest get ready for school.) She eats and drinks okay, I'm not always sure if she's getting enough. I offer food throughout the day and I let her sit until she lifts her tray to signal that she's done (and of course she takes meals with us). She's never taken a binky or a bottle. She drinks from a cup. I want to cut down on the amount of feedings without stressing her. I don't want to stress her at all. But I'm tired and naturally thin and starting to think that all the nursing is making me thinner (5'9'' and about 126 lbs)!! I don't want to stop completely but I do want to sleep. Any suggestions at all are appreciated. Important: if I stop before she's ready (only at night) will it completely ruin her happiness? She is so loving and funny and happy. If it's going to make her upset I can deal...she's not going to be a baby forever. I wanted to nurse my oldest but had her young, no support, & gave up as soon as my mom suggested it. Regret it to this day. Want to try everything with this one. Thank you.
