Ben is 15 months and only nurses 1x a day. That seems to be all he wants! I really hope to make it to 18 months, but right now...I'm not sure he'll want it that long!

jacob is 25 months and nurses at bedtime plus an occasional morning nursing session on weekends (i work FT so i don't see him in the mornings during the week). i was the one who started cutting sessions at 18 months b/c i wanted him to wean by 2 (which obviously didn't happen ). at 18 months he was still nursing 3-4x/day.

Allison is 14 months and nurses 3x a day most days- once in the morning, before her nap, and at bedtime. If we have an appointment that inteferes, she'll only nurse twice.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the terrific siggy!

Leila nurses once a day at bedtime, rarely she skips a day. Leila is nearly 40 months old.

Owen nurses around the clock still. At least 4 times during the day, if not more, and at least 3 times during the night. He is 20 months old.

Thanks *Kiliki* for the precious siggy!

Ashlynn is 14 months old and nursing 3-5x a day on average. She usually nurses in the morning when she wakes up (anywhere from once to 50 times..LOL she pops off and on constantly, so I just count it as once), once before nap time or whenever Mommy sits down if we're out during nap time, occasionally after nap time, then before bed and usually, but not always, once in the middle of the night.
She's an addict..LOL

38 months and once a day. Would be more if I let her. Had her down to about once a day, most days, for about 6 months now

Eli is 22 months old and nurses 2-3 times a day. Morning, nap, and bedtime. We had gotten rid of the naptime session for awhile but lately he wants it again. He even pushes me away during bedtime sessions some nights, but then other nights he's clearly boob obsessed. I think it's normal for them to go back and forth.
