    Default How many feeds a day for 11 month old?

    Completely up to you...you can do a scheduled 3 if you want, or stick with what you're doing. I'd say you didn't get any extra advice because it really is a personal decision, where pretty much any choice is a good one if you're happy with it.
    I just wanted her advice from a purely nutrition stand point to help me make a decision in what I should consider in regards to weaning. I totally understand breastfeeding is so much more than food but in regards to if I wanted to start weaning him at a year it would be nice to know how much milk in a nutrition sense she recommended. If I was formula feeding she would have given me advice, ya know?

    Overall she wasn't much help, maybe because from my food diary she figured I didn't need it, just handed me a pamphlet on nut allergies and sent me on my way.

    It's actually been pretty hard here to get advice on breastfeeding sometimes. The only people who seem to be any proper help are if you contact a private lactation consultant. Everyone else is pretty useless or flat out doesn't offer me advice at all. UKs breastfeeding rates are actually quite low, every health professional I come in contact with is amazed that I'm still going and it's like they don't want to say anything to rock the boat.

    Ha ha yes, it's extremely hard going. But on the bright side my DD slept better of her own accord from 13 months old. Still wants booby if she wakes in the night now (17 months old) but it's only once a night, and many nights she sleeps through. Once she eventually self weans I'm sure it'll be better still.

    Hang in there, I'm amazed I'm still feeding my DD too. Only made it to 13 weeks with my first baby. Very little breastfeeding support when I lived in the UK, and I tried to get it, but I now know it was a nursing strike. No one mentioned that at the time.

    Anyway, you're doing great. xo

    Ummmm put it this way- we didn't night wean until 17 months- over a 24hr period it was prob more like 8-10 feeds. God I was tired!

    Hadn't you done something gentle to get her to sleep through? I subscribed to your thread but haven't look at the website yet. Or did you end up not having to do it because she did it on her own?

    We'll probably do something when DH gets back as I'm not sure I can cope with nights like this anymore. He's almost hourly from 11pm. Just wants me as close as possible. Before Christmas we tried DH sleeping in his room and me not going in at all after a feed around 10 so I could sleep but know he still had somebody comforting him. First night was hourly and ages to resettle, second night hourly but easy to resettle. Third night he slept until 5am but I had to go in because DH was passed out from a Christmas party. And that was the beginning of the end of the progress. Next night 4am and same thing as DH had a party and then after that he just went back to normal. When dh gets back we'll try that again but do it for a week or two to fully break the mommy habit! After this past week I'm unsure I can go on nights the way they are.
