My baby is 5.5 mos old and recently started daycare so we've settled into a new routine and I'm concerned about whether she's eating enough.
We co-sleep and generally she'll nurse sometime around 6:30 am (feeding 1). Then we arrive at daycare at 8:30 and I nurse her there (2). They give her a mid-morning bottle (usually around 3-3.5 oz) (3). Then they call me when she's ready to eat again and I go over and nurse around lunch time (4). Then she gets another bottle mid-afternoon (5). I pick her up at 5 and if it's been more than 2 hours or so since the bottle or if she's acting hungry, I will nurse her, otherwise we hightail it home and I nurse her as soon as we get home (6). The last feeding of her day is usually when I nurse her to sleep at 7:30 or so (7). Usually when I get into bed around 10:00, she will nurse again in a sleepy state (8). Then, she has free access to my breasts all night and will usually nurse maybe twice (?). I don't really keep track but these are very short sessions and I don't think she takes in a lot of milk. We are both mostly asleep for this.
Does this sound like enough? It FEELS like a lot less than she was nursing a month ago, before daycare, partly because she was going to bed much later then so we would have these marathon evening cluster feeds.
