What are your hours, including transportation time? How many times a day does baby normally nurse?

In answer to your title question... 8-10 ounces for the day. Servings of 2-3 ounces.

I worked 60 hour weeks AND traveled for business ten day sat a time. Nursed to 26 months. It's a BIG FAT myth that you must stay hme to nurse.

I work full time and have never had an issue with preference. You'll be fine, just follow the feeding guidelines on Kellymom. :)

Tip: press "quote" so that the person knows who you're responding to and gets notified of the response. :)

I was asking literal hours (8-5 for instance). :) How much you send is related to the number of hours of separation per day. :)

I did it and i did have issues with my first refusing to actually nurse after a while but my second always prefered the breast, she would only take a little at daycare and cluster feed like crazy at home..just depends on the kid.
