  • Kathleen nurses more than a newborn. She is 21 months. I refuse to nurse her at night, although she still cries for me to allow it. So this morning, she nursed at 6AM, 7AM and it is now 9:30 and she has been crying and begging to nurse again. Yes, she had breakfast!!

    I follow AP as much as I can, but every 1-2 hours is ENOUGH. My sons were weaned by this time. Has anyone been in this boat before?

  • Douglas weened himself completely by the time he was 14 or 15 months. Sienna is on her way there, and I think I could get her to snuggle to sleep instead of nursing her (might take a little extra time at first, but I think she'd be just fine... if she falls asleep in the car around nap/bed-time she just lays down with no problem)...

    So I guess I'm no help! I hope you get some relief soon!!!

  • I am having the opposite problem. My daughter is 14 1/2 months old and is down to 1-2 nursings a day. I am sooooooooo sad that this might be the end. I wanted to nurse her till she was 2 but I dont see that happening (although she does really really love her 1-2 nursings that she does have).
