Re: So my grandma says to me yesterday....

I just wanted to chime in to say that my DS only BF 4 times a day at 7 months and has done so since he was 5 months old, so really every baby is different. He gets solids now twice a day (mixed with milk), which he started at 6 months.

Really in the end every baby makes their own schedule and as long as they are happy that is what matters!

Re: So my grandma says to me yesterday....

My son didn't start going more than 2-3 hours between feedings until January, 15 months old. That's when he started eating solids 3x a day.

Right now, at 16 months old (well actually up until Tuesday, when he got the stomach flu) he was eating a morning nap (11 am), late afternoon nap (4pm), and bedtime (9pm), then 2-3 short 2-5 minute nursings during the night for comfort feeds. (so 5-6 times a day)

Since Tuesday, when he got the stomach flu, he's been nursing on demand, every 1.5-3 hours. 'Round the clock. I'm sure your grandma would faint at that!! (I know my boobs & supply are in shock! I thought we were nearing weaning & with this flu its like having a tiny baby again!)

My 4 year old doesn't go 6 hours between meals. I can't imagine an infant!
