How often do your babies nurse per day?

Isaiah is almost 11 months and he still nurses 6 times per day I would say and a couple times over night. I dont really have a problem with this but I think he needs to start eating a bit more food soon since he is quickly approaching one.

Lyndsey still nurses a lot! She nurses every three or four hours still. Except at night but she still wakes me up every morning around sixish to nurse. Then she goes back to sleep.

Andrew is 15 months old and he nurses before bed, during the night and in the morning. Sometimes he nurses when we first get home in the evenings.....but only when nothing else will pacify him. He would nurse more if it was up to him, but I've semi-weaned him to this.

Harrison is 15 months also, he nurses in the morning, sometimes for a long time, depends on if I'm trying to get him to sleep in, at nap time and bed time for sure, sometimes in between, sometimes not, depends on our day.

no idea how many times. SHe is pretty much a 3 hrs like clockwork kind of girl, but will sometimes snack, and other times we will get busy while we are out and she might not nurse for 5 or 6 hours.

here too with Nathalia

Alorah nurses maybe 3 times a day and only for about 2 minutes at a time. At bed time she nurses for a bit longer.

Ethan nurses at least 8 times a day (including overnight). He's a snacker too and just likes to have a suck here or there. At his cousin's b-day party he was feeling really insecure and I nursed him about 5 or 6 times in 1.5 hours! He's a big-time comfort nurser. I've started doing the "don't offer, don't refuse" weaning strategy, but he asks a lot!

I work outside the home. Annika nurses every hour on the hour from 5 till bed time. Then she will go to bed and wake about 230 ish to nurse again.

Wow! Some of you still nurse a ton! I have just this week cut to 4 sessions instead of 5 because we have had to introduce Pediasure-she is not gaining weight like she should. I was all for it too as each session is 30 minutes still! I cannot imagine nursing 8 times a day still, but then again, yours probably don't nurse for 30 minutes, or do they?????

She also sleeps through the night and doesn't wake up to nurse!
