How often does you baby nurse?

I'm just curious to learn how often other babies nurse and at what age.

I know that there is a lot of information out there about how often a newborn typically nurses but I haven't found a lot of information about what is typical for an older baby once they start solids.

My son is 9 months. He now nurses only three times a day and once overnight most of the time.

Hello Becca! Miles is 7 1/2 mos now and nurses 5 or 6 times daily, sleeps through the night and eats solids about 4 times each day.

my daughter is 10 mos old & ebf. she eats, well, constantly. nursing is still comfort to her, (i'm a pacifier) & she's refueling from a growth spurt. today, i'd estimate she's nursed at least 4 or 5 times so far, plus a few quick nips on top of that. at this rate, she'll have nursed about 10 times by the day's end.
