At 11m old, how many times a day are our babies typically nursing?

11 months? It all depends on the kid. Mine were nursing every 2 hours still, but if they got distracted or if we were out and about it could be most of the day.

My good friend is having her Bach party weekend Fri-Sun when he's 11m. Trying to figure out if I can swing it...

He takes bottles though right? I'm guessing he'd be fine without you if you left a stash and pumped while away. It also depends on what kind of eater he is then.

It's really hard to know until they get started on solids. If he is a picky eater with his solids, he will want to nurse more. If he is one of those babies who loves food, he will most likely cut back some on the nursing by 11 months. I looked in Josiah's baby book, and it said that at 10 months he was starting to eat table foods and was up every 2-4 hours to nurse. It said at 12 months that he was eating three solid meals a day plus snacks and continuing to nurse. I think at that point, he was nursing closer to every 4 hours. I'm sure if he is bottle fed (or by then he might be using a sippy cup) and you can pump enough beforehand that he would be fine. I remember feeling like it was less of a necessity to pump EVERY bf-ing session that was missed as he got older. The boobs don't get as engorged then as they do in the beginning months. I often felt I could go up to 5 or 6 hours at a time without needing to pump if I was away during the day. Hope that helps some!

Yeah, I think the ladies covered it. It depends on the child. You could probably prepare him for it closer to the time.

I did a weekend away when my second soon was 8 months and he did okay. I pumped and dumped because I had no way to transport the milk back home.

I agree, it depends on the kid. Liam was only nursing 3 times a day (he was sleeping through the night), Loch was super busy during the day and only nursed twice during the day but like 6 times during the night. Lila was probably 10 times a day, give or take.
