My Dakota is 11wks and she nurses at least 203 times a night and every 90 minutes-2 hours during the day. She nurses a lot.

For me I never really counted, just kept feeding on demand. I'm pretty sure at 3 months ds went through a growth spurt and was eating about every 1-2 hr and then after that the growth spurt every 3 hrs. At 3 mths he was walking at night every 3 hrs.

my DS is 10wks and he nurses every time he wakes up.:giggle: that's about every 4 hours if we are at home all day. If we are out and about, and his naps are interupted, he eats more often.

We're getting about 5 hours at night.

We nursed on demand and it seemed to average every 3 hours until 4 pm, when we ate at 4, 5, 6 and 7 pm, and then every 3 hours until 5 am when we ate at 5,6, and got up and ate at 7.

I'd say probably 10-12 average maybe...
DD used to nurse on demand every 2 hours when she was that young. Maybe slept 3 or 4 hours at night before waking to nurse.

My DD nursed about every hour around the clock until she was nearly a year old. DS nurses maybe 6-10 times during the day and 2-3 times in the night.

Nate? When he was 3 months, he nursed 1x a day..... ALLLLLL DAY!!!! :giggle:

I fed him on demand and it was pretty much, nurse for an hour, get an hour off, and back on again. Totally a boob baby! ;)

DD is 3 mo. 2 wk. and she nurses every 2 hours during the day after waking, then every hour at 6, 7, & 8. She goes to bed @ 9 and sleeps til about 5 am, then eats. Then goes back to sleep to eat again at 7 or 8. So, we're looking @ 8-12 times a day still. And the feedings last around 20-30 minutes.

My dd is 3 months and she nurses once a night, if that (she sleeps throught the night about half the time). During the day she nurses 6 or seven times normally.
