I'm usually up about 3 times for around 15-20mins.

I'm up every 2 hours for about 30 minutes each time. I'm super exhausted too. My girl eats all.day.long! I'm really hoping she'll spread her feedings out soon.

I get up every 3 hours. I could set a clock by Henry! It takes him a long time to nurse, plus I have to pump after every feeding, so I'm usually up for an hour or more.

At night I usually go to sleep about 11 then up somewhere between 1-2 and then usually between 5-6 and am up for 20-30 mins depending howmuch she eats. Last night I nursed for 4hrs off and on and she slept for 4hrs which was nice but my nipples hurt a ton! I've also been falling asleep randomly throughout the day unfortunately that doesn't work well with a 2yr old around.

I'm usually up about 4 times a night, although his feedings are pretty sporadic. Usually he wants to feed every 1 1/2 - 2 hrs for about 10-15 minutes at a time. Last night he surprised us by not making a peep between midnight and 4am. It was great!

DH and I usually get ourselves and the twins last feeding in before bed at around 10, then it takes a hile for them to sleep. On a good night all of us were sleeping by 11. Usually we are up again around 1 but last night they didn't wake us up until 3:30! I was shocked, I dont count on that lasting long. Then we usually are up again around 4, and then 7. So 3-4 times/night about 45 min-1 hour each time, if I pump mid-night add in 20 min for that.

It takes a long time even with two of us to change both and feed both then get them back to sleep. I don't look forward to when I'm doing it all by myself in a few weeks.

Caleb wakes every 2-4 hours and nurses for 30-45 min. So I'm up 3x/night usually. This morning he was wide awake at 7am, so I handed him to DH and went back to sleep for 2 hours. I can't nap b/c my 4 y/o doesn't nap. But luckily he sleeps until 9am!

It's been 3x per night awake for 20-30m, but last night she slept two 4.5 hr stretches and only nursed once so I'm going to go ahead and assume this is the new normal

Really I'm not bad. She has a very good routine of waking every 2-3 hours to feed and then it is right back to sleep. Now that we are having more good nursing sessions than bad ones we're chugging right along.
