Im curious what your LOs nursing schedule is like. Roman wants to nurse every hour without fail during the day. It makes it pretty difficult to go out and rin errands without spending the majority of time nursing between stores. Im thinking about making him wait a bit longer but wanted to compare.
Avery nurses anywhere from 1.5-3 hours during the day, but she is almost a month ahead of Roman so it's not the best comparison probably. At a month I remember it was close to every hour to 2 hours at most though. I'm just now trying to get her on a schedule during the day hoping it makes nights a little easier.
Yup...same here. Every hour, maybe two if she is snagging a good nap. But she eats a lot (hence me being online a lot! Lol. I can nurse and iPad at the same time ). I figure she will space it out when she gets a bit older. I think my boys ate this way at this stage too.
Lilah was nursing every hr too when I was nursing. I'm ep'ing now, and she now eats every 3-5 hours! I know I have fatty breast milk, so I guess getting 3.5 oz per feeding now just holds her for a long time.
Carter nurses every 3 hours. I tend to have to wake him up to eat during the day. At night, he gets restless because he has a wet diaper. I sometimes think he would go longer between feedings if I let him, but at 13 days old, I'm not going to. He is weighing 10.25 lbs now though!
Caroline is usually every 2-3 hours except when she does a cluster feed. The last two nights she has been up every two hours on the dot but sleeping more during the day so I'm going to start waking her up during the day every two hours so hopefully she will sleep longer at night.
Remy does mostly every 2 hours. At night he has been getting up at about 2 am and stays up for about 2 hours. have you thought about pumping and bringing a bottle when your out. I find it makes life a little easier when im on the run.
I'm paranoid about the bottle, too, right now, bc Lexi seems to have some latching issues. I haven't started pumping yet and don't know if I even want to! It certainly does make it harder to go out. I try to time it so I leave the house just after a feeding.
