Hi everyone. I didn't even know this forum existed! My name is Amy and I have been nursing my daughter Wren now for almost 13 months. It was my original goal to make it to a year, but now I'm thinking we'll try to get through flu season as well. In addition, I love nursing. Wren is very active, not super cuddly, so that quiet time together is priceless.

Anyway, my question is purely out of curiosity. How old is your LO and how often do you nurse?
Thank you for the precious siggy, Alethia!

My LO is 27, almost 28, months old. She nurses from 2-10 times a day. Generally in the 2-4 range, most days 2-3 times. ALWAYS in the morning and ALWAYS at night.

My LO is 15 months old and nurses 2-3 times a day. My goal was also a year and now I'd like to get thru flu season too I'm afraid my DD may wean in the next few months though, she isn't interested as much anymore. She skips nursing before bed about 1/3 of the time, just goes straight to bed after DH puts her jammies on her. And usually mornings before work are her best nursing time and she really wasn't interested this morning. She's starting to become a grouch in the mornings! But she is also getting her canines, so that may play in to it also.

My LO is 14 months old and nurses constantly. She nurses about 4-6 times throughout the night, plus maybe 4-5 times during the day and of course, before bed. If she's sick or teething or has other issues, she may want to nurse every hour, day and night. We went through a phase from about 11-13 months where she was nursing every 1-2 hours for the entire two months!! Thank goodness that's over.

I lurk, but I currently am nursing my almost 1 month old daughter. My oldest 2 weaned at 4 years old and 2 years old, so I still hang around here once in a while until I'm nursing past a year again

We just past 12 months, and i just found this board. I never planned on going past 12 months, but it seems only natural now. My lo is nursing about 6 times per day.

I nursed my first until she was 15 months and she weaned herself because I was entering my second trimester with my second child and she lost interest.

I nursed my second until he was 27 months for the same reason, pregnant with #3.

I am nursing my third and he just turned 2 about a week ago. I am pregnant with #4 and am not exactly sure how far along I am, but I suspect it is nearing the end of my first trimester because I can feel a dramatic difference in my supply and it has dropped a lot. He still loves to nurse, though. I'm not enjoying it AS much because he uses it as an excuse to get me to stop doing things with his older siblings and hog all of my attention (he's really manipulative. lol) and I really want him to gain more independence at this point. So he is 24 months and we occasionally nurse prior to a nap in the afternoons, I nurse him before bedtime at night, and then I nurse him first thing in the morning.

I'm nursing a 3.5yr old and she usually nurses 3-4x a day. She was down to once a day during my pregnancy but increased once there was milk again.

My nursling is a few days away from 15 months and nurses anywhere from 4-7 times during the day (less if we're out and active, more if we're staying at home) but basically alllll night (we co-sleep). The daytime feeds are usually very fast though, 5 minutes tops.

Hey Amy! This is my first time on this board, just browsing around because there's not too many mamas in our PR I can relate to in this aspect. Celia is almost 13 months, she drinks whole milk a couple of times a day and was down to nursing only once or twice but lately she has been wanting to nurse constantly. I hope it's just teething or something because it's getting uncomfortable. Anyways, there's the long answer to your question-i'm going to look around some more and see if I find any tips on how to handle this.
