  • Every 2 -3 hours and it can be 8 to 12 times a day.

  • All babies are different. I don't believe its a set amount of times but I know its like 6 to 12 if not more times a day depending on if you have a lazy eater.

  • 8-12. But as long as you're changing 6-8 diapers in 24 hours it doesn't really matter. Just nurse on demand.

  • Every couple hours in general, but it sure feels sometimes like you're nursing constantly, huh?

  • As often as they want to. Every 2-3 hours is pretty normal.
