I'm still logging everything, feedings, diaper changes, sleep... so I know exactly how long and how often I nurse lol

On average it's 14 times a day with a total of about 6 - 6.5 hours. The fewest was 10 feedings and the highest was 20!

Excuse my typos, there is either a baby on my boob or sleeping in my arms

Thank you *sharon* for my adorable siggy

During the week, it's usually 5-6 times per day (and I pump at work/she gets bottles at daycare). On the weekends, it's somewhere between 12 & 15, usually.

I don't keep track but if I took a guess it would be roughly 10 times a day, most days. During the day it's roughly every 2 hours and at night it's every 3 unless he's doing one of his nurse all night spurts.

Keelan usually nurses in the morning when he first wakes up, before nap and at bedtime. There may be one or two during the night, but they are usually short and he will once in a while nurse during the day as well.

He usually takes 4-5 bottles a day at daycare and I pump 5 times a day at work (9 hour day). We also nurse when I drop him off at daycare, at lunch, and when I pick him up. At home we nurse 3-4 times during the evening/night and once in the morning before we get out of bed. I guess that makes 10-12.

Oh gosh, I'm not sure. Lots? Probably between 8 and 12.
