  • When my boy was 3 months old, he nursed about every two hours or so. I would really just nurse on demand though. Whenever he needed or wanted it.

  • Mine eat every 3-4 hours. AT night they can go for 6. WooHoo. At times they need a little more, I let them nurse for comfort.

  • As much as they want, it maintains supply and lets them learn to trust their body signals of when they are hungry and not
