Just wondering how it's going for everyone?

How often does baby eat?

Going great for us! L nurses great. Each day is different. It's normally every 3 hours or so, but some days it's every hour and others every 4-6 hours. Eh we nurse on demand so I go with whatever he wants. I've got a good stash of pumped milk should he ever need it and I'm still donating around 150-200oz every month to either local moms or the NICU.

I'm currently hooked up to the milker here in my office! Mooooooooooo

Ingrid is still a good little nurser and I've been able to keep up with just breastmilk, so that's a win in my book. She eats around every 3 hours when we're together (unless she's napping through) and sleeps anywhere from 3-8 hours at night- it's a crapshoot still.

When DH gives her bottles, she's usually content with anywhere from 2-4 oz still. Which is good, because I'm pumping pretty much just what I need to replenish. 3 pumps = slightly more than 2 feeds

Going well! Rosie is EBF so I have no idea how much she's getting, but sometimes it's every 3-4hrs other times it's every hour.

Thanks *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!

Breastfeeding. Most times, it's every 3-4 hours, but it's around 7-8 hours at night.

He's had a few bottles here and there, but those will be picking up when I start back to work tomorrow. He eats 3-4 ounces at a time, but if he's still hungry, he gets more.

There are times during the day where he might also only take an hour break, but he's been known to take a 5-6 hour break. It just depends.

Great! I'm BF right now

We feed on demand. During the day she usually nurses every hour at home, or every 2-3 hours sometimes if we're out and about and she's sleeping (she naps better on the go).Then at night she'll sleep one long stetch (7-8 hrs) and then maybe two short stretches (1-3 hours).

I'm also pumping once a day. I haven't counted recently, but I have several hundred ounces in the deep freeze. This time next week I'll be pumping at work .

A eats 4-6oz every 2-3 hours when in the bottle. When I nurse he's seem to eat about every 1-2 hours but I have no idea how much he eats when I nurse him.

We are EBF and she seems to nurse a lot during the day. Every 1-3 hours (closer to about every 2 hours). To be fair some of that is probably me because that is the easiest first solution if she is fussy so sometimes I nurse her and she nurses to sleep almost instantly.

At night she does one longer stretch (5 hours or so) and then every 2-3 hours.

I can finally get my free pump through insurance since it is July now so I would like to start pumping and building a little stash so I can sneak out to a movie or do something by myself sometime. I was never able to do that with my first daughter so it would be a real treat!

We nurse on demand. It varies wildly from day to day. Sometimes he eats every 1 to 1.5 hours sometimes he eats every 4. He only gets a bottle when I need to leave him with hubby to run errands or take the big kids somewhere alone. I had a freezer stash but it is slowly dwindling. I should replenish but I loath the pump. Id rather just take him with me everywhere ; ) I am going to start to pump again though now that it is summer and I'm more flexible with our schedule. I want to leave a bottle when I workout at the gym, maybe have my parents sit so we can have a date etc

It's going well, no issues. I have no idea how much he eats, but during the day it's about every two hours, and at night he does one approx 5 hour stretch, and then 2 more shorter stretches. He only nurses on one side per feeding. It's been that way since day one, not my preference, but it is his. The few times that I've offered both & he's taken it, he ends up spitting up, so it's obviously too much. Most mornings I try to pump one side while he nurses on the other, and I get varying amounts--this past week it was 4-5oz. I freeze it for just in case purposes. He has only had one pumped bottle & that was very early on, because his sister really wanted to feed him, and she accidentally knocked a frozen container off the shelf & the lid cracked, so I had to use it.
~Thank you AlexAiden Mommy for this beautiful siggy~

EBF on demand here so no clue how much she gets but she eats or snacks every 30mins to 2 hours, doesn't seem to go more than 2 hours during the day unless she is sleeping. At night she'll do a 3-6 hour stretch and then shorter stretches till morning. Going great, no complaints
