Can't tell you the answer, as I am still nursing both my kids, but am also interested to hear. Isn't it amazing how 2 kids from the same parents can be SO different?DS has always been a major comfort nurser, woke up several times a night till 21 months to nurse, had to nurse to sleep till close to age 2, and nursed a LOT till he was past 2 (I think me getting pg again helped him to cut down some). Only recently since he was 3 has he cut down to twice a day. DD is only 7 months, either sleeps all night or only wakes once to nurse and will go right back to sleep on her own (with the help of the thumb), has been going to sleep on her own since birth, and now only is nursing about 6 times a day, which is WAY less than her brother. If I offer more, she does not always WANT it!
