From your description it certainly sounds like he's nursing for nutrition. I would be very hesitant to cut the last couple of nursings.
I have been working on semi-nightweaning for a month now. He is down to nursing only once or twice and sleeps 4-5 hours at the start of the night compared to waking every 2 hours, so there has been some improvements. BUT, when he nursed he seems sooo hungry, he just glugs the milk back and changed sides twice before he is done and turns away to go to sleep. I nurse him at 3 or 4am, and usually he wakes at 5 or 6 to nurse again. If its 6 he is up for the day. My ds is only 19lbs, which is below the 3rd percentile on the charts (has been since about 6 or 7 months). I am struggling with the decision to try and get him to give up night nursing all together because he is such a little guy and he seems hungry to me. Has anyone else had this experience? Do you think he is really hungry? Once night weaned do they start to eat more in the day? He is such a light eater.
Thanks for your insight
