Re: How often does your infant nurse>
My baby is 6 months. We usually nurse 4x/day: 7:30 am, 12 noon, 4 pm, and 6 pm. Sometimes he gets up once in the night...not usually anymore. He only nursed 5-6x/day even in the beginning. I think some women have a greater storage capacity. I know that my sister-in-law can take an hour to pump 4 oz. Whereas, if I am away from baby for a feeding, I can pump 8 oz. in 10 min.!!! So she does lots of small meals, and I do fewer but bigger meals. Get it?
