I fed my dd until she was 3. We co slept and i found it really hard to stop the night feeding. It was such an ingrained habit. I suppose very similar to a child with a dummy. She is now 8 and yet it seems like only yesterday.
Afaik 4 times in 24 hours isn't particularly frequent for a 2 yr old.
My current 2 today BF Morning Before leaving house While out When home Before dinner Bedtime Will feed at least twice before morning
My middle would have fed much more frequently at this age, my first less (probably 5 times)
I'm also not sure it takes much energy at this age Sadly as I could use the calorie deficit! could you pick some things that might help your energy levels? Iron, multi vitamin, more sleep, more water, less sugar etc
OTOH if you want to cut down I would advise being busy & don't offer dont refuse
Yes the tiredness is probably related to other stuff as well. I definitely need to eat better. Plus am recovering from a virus so feel crap from that. I'm a single parent so that can be tiring in itself.
I co-sleep so I think cutting overnight feeds would be hard. I think another reason for tiredness is lo often wants to hold boob so this interrupts my sleep (I prefer sleeping on my front but that doesn't go down well)
I suppose I'm just a bit surprised I am still breastfeeding. On one hand I absolutely love it and cherish it while it lasts. On the other I've got my eye on a bed to myself and sleepovers at granny's!
