If your LO is on formula, what brand do you use? Do you use powder, concentrate, or ready feed?

If your LO is BF, do you have any dietary restrictions that you are needing to follow (dairy-free, etc...)?

How often does your LO eat?

Have you introduced any sort of "solids" yet? If so, how much/often?

How long of stretches does your LO go at night before needing to eat?



Jacob is EBF and thankfully I have not had any dietary restrictions. He seems fine with whatever I eat. He eats every 2 to 3 hours during the day and at night he has started giving me one 5 hour stretch of sleep then he is back to his every 2 to 3 hours of feeding. Breastfeeding is thankfully going really good for us. I am enjoying this time around. I didn't really like Breastfeeding Jackson but he always had trouble with his latch. I still don't know how we made it 13 months.

Kira is EBF though she gets bottles at night from hubby. I'm also lucky with no dietary restrictions.

She has a long sleep period in the morning where she eats around 6 or 7 and then not again until about 11. After that it's about every 2 hours for the rest of the day. Overnight is a crapshoot; sometimes hubby feeds her quite often and sometimes she sleeps almost overnight. There's no pattern there yet.

Sofia is now on Formula. She was on breastmilk for the first month and then we switched to formula d/t her lactose sensitivity. She drinks Enfamil Prosobee and also the target brand Up&Up soy. (depends on what I have coupons for) She eats during the day every 2-3 hours. She usually takes her last bottle sometime between 8-9pm, sleeping around 9:30pm and then wakes up between 2am-4am for her next bottle. After that longer stretch, it's back to the every 2-3 hours for the day. She drinks about 4 ounces each feeding.

We are EBF, no issues, no restrictions. I nurse on demand, which means somedays it's every 2 hours, some days it's every 15 minutes. LOL At night she's doing 2-3 hour stretches usually.

If your LO is on formula, what brand do you use? Do you use powder, concentrate, or ready feed? We have been through many. The nicu started him on regular Similac and then Similac sensitive. Since then we tried soy and eventually ended up on Enfamil Nutramegin. We use powder. It's easier when we are out and about.

How often does your LO eat? Every hour and a half. Sometimes two at the most while awake.

Have you introduced any sort of "solids" yet? If so, how much/often? I know it's not a popular thing to admit. But I have tried some rice cereal in his bottle. With a spoon probably around 4 months if he is ready. He is a very hungry baby and has always been a piggy.

How long of stretches does your LO go at night before needing to eat? It ranges 6 to 10 hours.

How often does your LO eat? Whenever he feels like it- some days it's every 3-4 hours, some days it's around the clock.

Have you introduced any sort of "solids" yet? If so, how much/often? Nope- nothing until 6 months or he's interested/ready.

How long of stretches does your LO go at night before needing to eat? He's my champion sleeper, I get a 5-6 hour stretch and then another 3-4 hours, then we're up for the day.

Liam is EBF he has had a bottle one time with pumped milk because our schedules got off track of each other. I thought he had a dairy sensitivity for a little while but it turned out we were just having oversupply problems and that's almost fixed now. I dont intend to do solids until he is interested in grabbing food or seems to need more than just milk.

I have to lay off the dairy and spicy food, otherwise she has BAD gas issues

How often does your LO eat?
Everyth 3-4 hours...once in a while she'll stretch it out to 5 because she's been napping, but it doesn't happen very often.

Have you introduced any sort of "solids" yet? If so, how much/often?
We put a tsp of rice cereal in her night time bottle (the only time she's guaranteed a bottle because she's BFing during the day) to help her keep milk down. I talked her to doc about her spitting up/choking issue and she suggested the rice cereal....it's been a week, and so far so good! No spoon feeding until about 4 months though.

How long of stretches does your LO go at night before needing to eat?
She'll eat anywhere from 9pm to 11pm, depending on how often she's been feeding during the day. She'll go to sleep anywhere from 10pm to midnight, and wakes up anywhere from 6am-7am. Last night though, she ate at 10, went to bed at 11 and slept in til 8:30 (score!).
