I've nursed my 11-month-old daughter on demand since birth. When I began, I had the idea that she would naturally nurse less and less frequently as she got older. The opposite is true--she still nurses several times a day. Usually at least every two hours, and sometimes a few times within a single hour! She continues to thrive physically and she's typically a happy baby. I chose to ap with the understanding that it would grow her into a secure child, but I have to wonder if her hyper-nursing tendencies point to insecurities? Because I thought that, physically, her need to nurse would be less by now. Any ideas?
