Eric asks to nurse 7 or so times a day/ night. Probably goes like this
7am upon waking up
11am to go for nap
2ish after nap
4 or 5pm after dinner
8pm to go to bed
2 or 3am ish when wakes up to nurse
4 or 5am ish wakes again
Wakes around 7
He eats breakfast with me, as much as he wants until he says all done
He eats when he get up from nap with me until done
He eats dinner with me too as much as he wants
Also any time I snack he eats some of my food.
I'm practicing " don't offer don't refuse" because my obgyn wants me to have him cut back to 2 times a day as I am 9 weeks pregnant. I'm skeptic if this is necessary and I can not imagine getting him down that far anytime soon. But she's my dr and I trusted her a lot......
I need to know if he is nursing too much for my pregnancy to be healthy.
I know that don't offer don't refuse is a weaning method and i'm NOT trying to wean but I don't know how I am supposed to get him to ask less. When he asks I offer to get food for him instead but often he says no. So my question is, is he nursing too much? And if so, how the heck am I supposed to cut him back.
So how much is your toddler nursing while you rare pregnant? Eric is almost 1 1/2 years old now.
