How are things going over all? It's going ok now that I am pumping ALL the time. I am still having to supplement with 4-6 oz of formula a day but I am more comfortable with it now than I was at first. Sometimes I nurse for as long as she will then I give her a bottle of pumped milk if she is still hungry.

How often is LO nursing? about every 2-4 hours. At night she wakes up twice to eat. Usually around 230 and again at 5.

How long does each feeding last on average? 15-20 mins. Sometimes longer. I let her nurse as long as she want but it is usually not more than 30- 45 mins.

Any thoughts on how/ when you're going to wean? I have been thinking about it but I have read that it is best for baby to have breast milk for the first year. I will at least be doing some (pumped) BM and some F until she is 1 if I don't continue to nurse.
