Just wondering how often those who are nursing older babies (six months+) nurse a day? My son (who is 7 months old) eats 2 meals of solid food (just cereal and veggies at the moment) a day and nurses 4 to 6 times a day. Sometimes it seems like he hardly ever nurses (but honestly, I don't keep track very well anymore). He nurses at least once a night (and sometimes twice and sometimes never...). I'm under the impression that breastmilk is still his #1 source of nutrition and introducing solids shouldn't decrease the number of nursings (until 8 to 10 months or later), but seems to be whether I like it or not.
