I am still nursing about every 3-4 hours. He goes right to business but sometimes he will pull at me.

During the week he gets bottles of pumped milk at daycare.

I pump at work every 3 hours so 3 times a day.

No I don't supplement at all.

How is nursing going? going ok, no complaints

How often does baby nurse? probably 8-10x's a day What about when you are out of the house? Most of the time i give her a bottle when we're out.

Does your LO go straight to business, or is LO easily distracted these days?If she's really hungry than she'll go straight to business. But there have been several times that she'll suck, pull off look around, suck, pull off, look around LOl!

Do you pump? How often? How much do you usually get at each session? I haven't pumped in a couple of weeks now. I used to pump every morning, but i dont' have time anymore. When i was pumping i usually got 4-5 oz total from both breasts

Do you supplement at all? How often and why?Yes. She usually gets 1-2 bottles of formula per day (when i pumped she got bottles of EBM). I'm not comfortable BFing in public so that's why we do bottles then. She also gets a bottle of formula with her solid foods.

How is nursing going? great! she's on the boob now.

How often does baby nurse? What about when you are out of the house? i feed her on demand both at home and in public. sometimes she wants to nurse once an hour and other times she goes 3-4 hours.

Does your LO go straight to business, or is LO easily distracted these days? it depends on how hungry she is. she does get distracted in busy restaurants but her bonnet helps with that.

Do you pump? How often? How much do you usually get at each session? i hate pumping and she refuses bottles so there is no point.

Do you supplement at all? How often and why? nope.

How is nursing going? Great!! Still going strong

How often does baby nurse? What about when you are out of the house? About every 3-4 hours still.... we still nurse on demand. (about 6 hrs at night)

Does your LO go straight to business, or is LO easily distracted these days? Pretty easily distracted unless she is starving or sleepy. Likes to pull off and look around, then hurrry up and latch back on, lol its so funny.

Do you pump? How often? How much do you usually get at each session? Not really. I have really only pumped a handful of times bc I am a sahm, and I only have a small stash in case we want to go somewhere

Do you supplement at all? How often and why? Not at all

How is nursing going? Great!

How often does baby nurse? 4 times since she gets a bottle when I'm at work.

What about when you are out of the house? I hate seeing her take a bottle so I always nurse whenever she's with me.

Does your LO go straight to business, or is LO easily distracted these days? Easily distracted.

Do you pump? Yes. 3 times a day. I pump 7 ounces on one side before work and then 12 ounces on both sides the second and 8 the 3rd.

Do you supplement at all? Nope.

How is nursing going? Great!

How often does baby nurse? What about when you are out of the house? I nurse him in the morning before I take him to daycare, he gets 3 bottles at daycare and I nurse him 2x at night. When we're home all day he usually only nurses 5 times total. When we're out I usually just nurse him because I don't really want to use the pumped milk and then have to pump again because I didn't nurse. Plus he usually doesn't take long so it's easy to just nurse him and be done

Does your LO go straight to business, or is LO easily distracted these days? 3 days ago I would have said right to business, but the past couple days every little sound he turns his head and gets distracted.

Do you pump? How often? How much do you usually get at each session? I pump one side in the morning and get 4-5oz. Then I pump once at work and get 8-10.

Do you supplement at all? How often and why? No. He's had formula twice since coming home from the hospital. He had it in the hospital when they'd run out of my pumped milk because he had to stay there for a week and I wasn't able to be there with him all the time.

How is nursing going? Great and better then I ever thought it would
How often does baby nurse? We do on demand unless he's at school (day care).
What about when you are out of the house? At school he gets 3- 4 - 4oz bottles of half BM and half soy formula. I only pump once a day at work, which is enough for the next day.
Does your LO go straight to business, or is LO easily distracted these days? Usually straight to business but after a few minutes he gets distracted. LOVES TV no matter what it is. Which sucks b/c I like to watch the news for his morning feeding and at night I nurse him during my shows.
Do you pump? YES
How often? M-F on lunch
How much do you usually get at each session? 6-8oz depends on how well he ate that morning.
Do you supplement at all? Yes
How often and why? M-F at school he gets half BM and half formula bottles and solids 2-3 times a day.
