My 17-month-old still nurses quite a bit. Usually doesn't go for more than 2-3 hours during the day without nursing. If we're out and about, I can hold her off longer (usually). At night, how many times she nurses is a bit hazy for me, but it's at least 3 times. Lately, any time I sit down--whether it's on the couch to relax for a minute or on the floor to play with her--she just makes a grab for me and is ready to nurse. Seriously.every.single.time.
Even lately when I go to visit my mom now, which is usually about a 5-hour visit, she is asking to nurse like every hour. This isn't typical...usually at my mom's we only nurse like once...maybe sometimes twice.
I'm not looking to wean or anything, but I'm curious how many other toddlers are like this. Sometimes I can distract her if I need to for whatever reason, but lately even that's not working very well. Doesn't want the sippy cup, doesn't want a stuffed animal, doesn't want to play, but just to nurse.
Her sleep has been pretty off--harder to get down at night, sometimes restless--so I'm sure it's some kind of developmental thing or teething...but, wow. It's like nursing a newborn all over again!
