Is there an amount of BM that your toddler needs to still get immunities? Like if they just nursed 1x a day are they still as well off as if they nursed more often? My little guy is not nursing long in the morning anymore...and during the day he doesnt nurse a whole lot other then before his nap...and he still nurses before bed....so he nurses well before bed, usually well before nap....and then 1-2 more times but just for a few mins

It is my understanding that even a nursing just once a day provides immunological benefits. I don't know if they ever determined if toddlers get increased benefits from increased BM intake though.
