for days when I'm not at work, she nurses at least 2x before 6am and at least 3x before she goes to bed (between 5 and 9p).

On the weekends, it's every 2-2.5 hours.

DS nursed every 2 hours, 'round the clock at that age. He took 3 naps a day. One from about 9-11am, then one from 1-2:30pm, then one from 5-6pm.

DS nurses 10-12 times a day. During the day, he's like a clock and will wake up from the deepest of sleeps to nurse if it's been two hours. He goes anywhere from 3-5 hrs at night before he's up again to eat.

Naps are a little less predictable. I'm not sure exactly how much he sleeps since he's still not on a predictable schedule as far as that goes. He does sleep more in the AM and is in and out of sleep and has a good period of awake time in the afternoon. So hard to say. Sorry I can't help there...

Re: how many times does a 3 mo old nurse?

My Ds is 4months in 2 days. We nurse on demand, varies day to day. some times it is every hour sometimes it is 3-4 hours. Night time he sleeps with me so we turn over to switch sides about 3 times a night.

He usually has a long nap (1-2hours) in the morning and another long nap before 6pm. But some days he takes cat naps (15-30mins) after every nursing.
Oh and at night he only wakes enough to latch on and falls asleep nursing so we count that as sleeping through the night. Because we don't actually get up.

Every child is different. My first nursed on schedule 3-4 hours till about 8months when she started solids, and slept all night without nursing.
My oldest ds nursed all the time, he could never seem to get full. and never slept.
My youngest dd nursed irregular every 1 to 4 hours and took one long nap in the afternoon. Stayed up all night.
