How often does your 1 yo nurse?

I have a 2 1/2 yo who would nurse all the time if I let her so my view of what's "normal" is a little skewed. I have a 12mo who only nurses 2x a day. This has been going on for a couple months. She does eat table food great so I'm not worried about nutrition. 2 times a day just doesn't seem like much to me but it's all she's interested in. How often does a 12 mo usually nurse?

morissa is 15 months and probably nurses at least 6 times a day although I have night weaned her so maybe that has something to do with it.
dd is 14 months, nurses many times, I don't even keep track, but if I had to approx. I would say 10 during hte day and 5 at night - is that a lot? :)
That's what I thought. Should I be encouraging more? I really want to nurse at least 2 years. My supply is way down though because my 1 yo was tapering off, my supply decreased so I cut my 2 1/2 yo way down to 1x a day so I could make sure I had enough for the baby. Now, it feels like my supply is way down. Should I try to increase my supply and nurse the 1yo more? She's not vaxed so I really, really want her to nurse.
