Hello

I wonder if I can use " used to " instead of " would " in the following sentence#1 like #2.

#1 My mother would often bake bread on Saturday mornings.
#2 My mother used to often bake bread on Saturday mornings.

If #2 is OK, do both sentences have the same meaning?

Thank you. :)

Same meaning, but many speakers frowns upon the split infinitive "used to often bake". I would remove "often" from #2.
