My LO is 11 months, and we're still exclusively breastfeeding (no formula), although she will eat table foods with us. No huge amounts though.
I'm planning to nurse until age 2 years. How do I transition to nursing beyond a year? Right now, she's nursing every 3 hours during the day, and about 4-5 times in the latter half of the night. During the day, she doesn't give any signs as to when she wants to nurse. I just look at the clock and offer, and she takes it. If I am sometimes delayed and wait too long, like 3.5 hours or 4 hours, then she'll cry, so that would be a "sign." After she turns 12 months, should I just wait until she gives me that sign, or should I continue to offer every 3 hours?
