 Well we're past the eating all the time phase, but if they allow time to see your baby then I'd say, yes if you plan to bf then do it then.  It will help your bonding and your milk supply.

Agreed. Had my daycare been closer, I would have gone three times a day instead of pumping during that time.

How old is your child? I went to a high school that allowed me to have my daughter with me all day. (My daughter was 1mo when I went back to school.)& between classes I breastfed. So like every hour I would at least try and feed her.

My seven month old eats at least 6 times a day. He gets 3-4 seven ounce bottles per day and 5 ounces of juice. He eats at least a half a cup of finger foods and 3-4 four ounce containers of solids. However, his sleep schedule is different. He sleeps 12-13 hours per night and eats immediately after waking up at 9 AM. Then I feed him two hours later at 11AM and put him down for a nap half an hour after that at 11:30 AM. He sleeps for an hour and a half and wakes up at 12:30 or 1:00 PM then gets fed again. After that he is good for another 2 hours and gets fed at 3:00PM and then naps until 4 or 5. After that he is fed and is up until 8-9 where he gets his evening bottle.

I nurse my 13 month old every 2-3 hours still:-) I believe in feeding on demand when it comes to breastfeeding, it's best for supply, mommy, and baby.

 When my dd was first born she went threw a growth spurt right away so she was eating every 2 hours prob 8times a day if I remember right then she kind of got a feed routine where she just ate ever 3hours prob 6times a day then she went threw another growth spurt and was eating 10times a day. She napped more some days so the feeding wasn't as much. I didnt bf even tho I tried it just didnt work.

I still kinda feed on demand. Its goes anywhere between 2 to 4 hours depending on how much he fed the time before. I just look for hunger cues.
