30 minutes on each side. Usually an hour to two hours from end of one feeding to start of the next. Sometimes only 30 minutes. According to my little app, we nursed for 261 minutes yesterday. So far today, 228 but we will probably have two more long sessions between now and bedtime. He nurses a ton!!!
I don't really time it, and offer whenever she acts like she is hungry. I do try to switch up sides, I can never really tell if I am empty on either side so I just switch sides after ten minutes or so. She was up almost a pound from birth weight (and 1 lb 5 ounces from lowest weight at 24 hour appt) so I figure she is eating enough...
I do abt 5-7 on each side. She in latches when I'm empty it seems. I try to express more to see if I'm empty. If I'm not I put her back after burping her, if I am I switch. She ALWAYS wants both sides. Some stretches she eats every hour usually she is between 2.5 and 3 hrs. If we're in the car or out and abt she'll go 4 and at night she's 6 to 8. Pretty awesome. She's getting a chubby face too!
Well, Maddie really has no kind of set schedule yet. In general though, in the morning she will eat a lot, as she doesn't nurse much at night. She typically guzzles on both sides for about 10-15 minutes (per side) and then is good for the next 2-3 hours. Then she just kind of does whatever. Sometimes she will get in another full feeding and be good for an hour or two, other times she will simply eat for 5 minutes - go to sleep, and eat again 15 minutes later. She might do that a few times, and then finally get full and be good for an hour or two again. Usually she will not go longer then an hour or two after a feeding, sometimes not longer than 5 minutes! Sometimes she will nurse on and off for 30-40 minutes, and sometimes she only nurses for 5 minutes. In the evening she definitely eats more often. Then at about 9 she is pretty much out for the night, and doesn't really wake up much to nurse. SHe may have a couple small feedings during the night, but not much more.
