It was also framed with additional direction to keep an eye out for wet diapers and weight gain. I apologize for the blanket-ness of my statement. That wasn't what I intended. I nurse on demand and do not put my daughter on a schedule at all. She nurses whenever she desires and whenever she's thirsty, hungry, or just needing some mommy time. In my case, she doesn't drink much while away from me and then nurses much more frequently during the evening/night to compensate.
No problem just thought I should add that for all the Lurkers who read and don't respond. Nursing is so unique to the situation. Bottles, ect. So it's hard to gauge how much on should nurse. Kwim?
