Still can't believe I'm nursing a toddler, never dreamed I would go this long with all the probs we had in the beginning! Anyway, I still have random questions...I think I stress more now than I did in the beginning! Hoping you can shed some light and insight on how to continue nursing my 1 year old.
How does your toddler tell you when they want to nurse? Or is it more scheduled? DD was pretty predictable for awhile...she would nurse upon waking; before naptime; after naptime; and bedtime. Now, she's so active and dropped a few sessions...so in order to keep offering, I'm trying to read her cues. When I offer and she's not ready, she bites me and jumps off my lap. I've been trying to teach her the sign for "milk" for awhile, but no luck just yet. How do you know when your LO is ready for some milk?? I feel silly asking this
...also...from what I read, many of your toddlers are nursing 8+ times a day...what is considered a "nursing session" at this age anyway? Does your LO take both breasts each time? For how long? Or nibbles here and there? Just curious, thanks again!!!
