Do toddlers still need breast milk during the day if they're eating plenty of solids and getting lots of breastmilk in the evening and morning (and all night long, really)? In other words: can I quit pumping now?
My toddler is 13 months old and even though I work full time she has never drunk ANYTHING but breast milk (I've been pumping) and an occasional sip of water.
I plan to nurse for at LEAST another year but I'm SO SICK of pumping (I find it super painful and it's really hard to schedule). And she's never liked drinking bottled breast milk much--she only takes 2-4 oz of it a day currently. She prefers the boob direct.
We cosleep and she nurses frequently at night and the am. And by frequently I mean FREQUENTLY and for LONG periods of time, and during the whole night through. She is a big healthy girl--24 lbs and very active.
