Boobie Mommies:
How many times per day on average: Probably 5 times during the day, then a cluster feed in the evening and a few times at night
How long BF sessions about? Most are 10 to 15 minutes max
One or 2 boobs at a time: Usually 1. The longer she goes inbetween, the more likely she is to take both sides
where do you like to feed baby? Anywhere. We're always on the go. Today she ate while riding in the Ergo and I chased after the older 2 at the zoo. She probably eats most often on the couch. I like that becaue I can read to the older 2 while she eats.

BF/FF/both? FF

Formula Mommies:
How many feedings per day: She eats about 5-6 times a day
How many ounces per feed? 4-5 oz
What type of formula is LO on? We just switched back to Enfamil Gentlease
Any problems with previous formulas? we tried regular Enfamil, but it seemed to make her spit up a lot, she has minor reflux, so we had also tried the AR, the reason we switched to Gentlease is because Target has a comparable product, so when I do make it down there, I can get that and save about $10!!

BF/FF/both? BOTH! I mostly BF but when we are out in public- I usually give her a bottle or sometimes the man gives her a bottle when I am busy.


Boobie Mommies:
How many times per day on average:
all day. every 1-3 hours- depending on her mood.
How long BF sessions about? 30 minutes average. This kid likes to eat.
One or 2 boobs at a time: depending on her mood- I offer both.
where do you like to feed baby? I am more comfortable lying down on the couch with the pillow. (this is why I haven't really mastered public BFing)


Formula Mommies:
How many feedings per day
:1-2 bottles depending if we go out or not.
How many ounces per feed? 4.5 oz- although lately she is acting as if she wants more. So I might increase this.
What type of formula is LO on? Similac Advance with Iron
Any problems with previous formulas? Nope. This was the one offered to me in the hospital when she need supplementing and I just stuck with the brand.

BF/FF/both? breastfeeding


Boobie Mommies:
How many times per day on average: No idea... six maybe?
How long BF sessions about? Again, no idea
One or 2 boobs at a time: 2 boobs
where do you like to feed baby? I am more comfortable sitting propped up in my bed, but lately I do it in the playroom too a lot. Very rarely downstairs... I can´t get comfortable in a regular chair and if I sit on the couch then Max thinks I´m playing and wants to play too, lol

Any problems with previous formulas? I had him on prosobee because he has bad eczema but it never improved. He was straining to poop and there was blood sometimes. His pedi wanted me to put prune juice in his bottles. I'm thinking about trying a difderent soy because after being on enfamil infant for 2 weeks his eczema got worse

Bobbie Mommy!

Boobie Mommies:
How many times per day on average:
Maybe 6 or 8?
How long BF sessions about? Never longer than 10 minutes
One or 2 boobs at a time: One mostly
Where do you like to feed your baby? Wherever we are! Today she ate mostly on the couch because we have been home all day. Last night she ate at a sushi bar my friend and I were at


Okay, so I had NO IDEA that some babies breastfed for such short amounts of time!! My DS never ever ever ever ate less than 1 hour. Most of the time he would eat for around 3 hours. He ate ALL THE TIME. He would seriously eat for a few hours, take an hour off and eat for another few hours. I just thought this was how babies were (he was my first). Arie is the exact opposite. She will eat for 10 minutes, 15 max. I thought something was wrong with her because she is much smaller than him and eats way less, but after reading your responses she seems totally normal!

Feeding your LO!

BF/FF/both? BF

Boobie Mommies:
How many times per day on average: 6 in the day and 1 at night as of this past week, if she asks (literally throws her mouth at my chest) in between those feedings I let her eat too, I figure she knows better than I do if she's hungry, but she's been asking less and less since this new "schedule" kicked in
How long BF sessions about? anywhere from 15-40 minutes, usually 15-20
One or 2 boobs at a time:Always both, she gets really upset if I don't lol
where do you like to feed baby? we just bought a fabulous new rocking chair which is exactly my size, it's wonderful, i don't even need a pillow anymore

Breastfed baby I have no idea how many times/day, how long, or how many sides. I really don't pay that close attention. We mostly sit on the front porch glider, but now that it's getting cooler we've been in the rocking chair a bit more.
