My daughter is 20 months old and wakes up ever 2 to 4 hours to be breastfed. Is this normal at 20 months. She nurses anywhere from 1/2 an hour to 1 hour. I need help to understand if this is normal or should I seek peadiatric help. I am new at all this and just want to get it right so my baby will grow normally.

At 20 months they are old enough to not be needing a feeding in the middle of the night. It sounds like maybe it is more of a habit. Try seeing if you can find other ways of soothing her.
