    some babies go longer when you add in some solids, mine never really did...
    mine still did 2-3 hour feedings, plus one night feeding through 9 months(although they were quick 6-10 minute feedings)... it's just this last month that she's gone 3-4 hours... but even then we do an occasional 2 hour feed...

    I dont have any answers, per se, but rather some experience to share as the pp did

    My son is 8 mo. old, nurses about every 1-1.5 hours during the day and at night nurses loosley based on this "schedule" at night (9p when I put him down for the night ,12am,3am,5am, 7am when we wake up)
    most babies regulate themselves if allowed to nurse on "demand" I would think if your babe is fine with this schedule then alls well. All the "shoulds" of when they can and can't do things can get tricky. As long as shes happy things are going well.
