    My DD is almost 21 mths and she nurses 3-4 times during the day and about 2-3 times during the night.

    my LO is nursing less and less he's thirteen months and is just not that interested. I envy all you mamas who are nursing real toddlers. I feel like he's going to be done way too soon.

    My DD is 3 and now only nurses 2-3 times per day. We've actually had a couple days lately were she's not nursed at all .

    At 2, though, she still nursed quite frequently, and up until she was 22 months and I night weaned her, she nursed all night long. Until then she had never slept without nursing. I would often nurse her for ten hours at night so she would get plenty of sleep . I had to night wean for sanity's sake.

    At that age Max cut way down too, he was walking around and doing so man new things sometimes I felt like I was forcing it. Eventually he returned to the more frequent nursing.

    My DD is almost 31 months and she has slowed down significantly in the past month or two. Usually on days I work. She MIGHT nurse at lunch and then she MIGHT nurse after work (usually not) and then she will nurse to bed and through the night. When she wants my attention she will ask to nurse.
    Aww...since I first responded almost 2 months ago my DD is only nursing at night now. I think my milk has all dried up because of my pregnancy. She has a cold right now and last night was barely able to nurse. I really miss my milk since she is sick!
    Proud mom of 2:
    DD 5/2008 nursed for 3 years and 3 months.
    DS born 8/2011 nursing like a champ

    Sorry for the short responses...always, always, always NAK or holding a baby

    that's nice to hear I am there right now - I don't want to push it on him because i think that's just weird, but i do want him to be getting what he needs nutritionally - and selfishly i'm not ready for him to be done.

    My 12.5 month old nurses 4x a day (and that has been his schedule since 8 months old -- in the AM, before both naps, and bedtime).

    DD is 22 months old and still nurses frequently throughout the day. If she could stay attached 24/7 I am sure she would! She still wakes several times at night to nurse as well.

    nursing is DDs fav past time, that I am certain of.

    DS is 13.5 months and he nurses 6-8 times a day. If we are home all day, it could be more often... like every hour he'll nurse for 5 minutes. I guess he wants a quick sip of mom's milk?

    Mine is 18 months old, and nurses easily every 1-1.5 hours during the day (she does sleep through the night)! If she is playing with her Dad, she can go a few hours without nursing, but as soon as I come back, she always wants to!
