  • At that age? Every two hours like clock work, making 12 times a day. Now at three months every three and a half to four hours so 6-7 times a day. Except right now he's going through a growth spurt so I've been feeding him nearly every hour and a half to two hours so like ALL the time LOL.

  • Every 3 hours, so that averages to 8 times a day. I work Sunday nights so I miss one feeding on those days. My baby is 7 weeks today. When you are doing something that many times a day, you have to multitask. I usually do cafemom while nursing (thats why I'm on here so much :)

  • Heh heh..ask instead how often I was NOT nursing at that stage...mine was continually attached! I think I got a few minutes a day when he wasn't. And I literally mean minutes out of 24 hours...

  • "Im at about 8x a day "

    Normal. More important than counting nursing sessions is counting those diapers. THAT is what matters. If doc is asking how often baby nurses, doc doesn't know much about nursing.
