Now that she is home with me for the summer, she's been nursing every 2 hours during the day and maybe once at night if she wakes up.

Yup, nursing every 2-3 hours.

I have to say that I'm glad to read that seems normal!! I thought nursing a would be more spread out.
If we are out and busy doing something, she can make it 4 hours or so without having a meltdown but then I pay for it with cluster feedings later.

Jett eats about 24oz I weighed him before and after nursing. He eats 4oz, which is great since that is what size bottles he gets at day care. So every 3 hrs until bed time, and he usually wakes up once at night. He also gets oatmeal with fruit in the morning, and something either at lunch or dinner. =)
