I am nursing and Ali Claire eats every 2-3 hours during the day, and every 4-5 hours at night.

I am nursing. Usually Noelle goes about 2-3 hours during the day although sometimes, especially in the evening she thinks it should be more like every 1-2 hours. She gets in moods. At night we normally can go about 5 hours recently, once in a while 6.
She does get bottle fed breast milk while I am working nights.

I'm breastfeeding and he drinks expressed milk from a bottle when I'm at work.

He eats about every 1.5-2 hours during the day and will go 6-8 hours at night.

Ella is bf'ed. She averages about every 3 hours during the day. She has been sleeping through the night lately. If she goes down "early".....9 or 10 she will wake between 4-5 but her norm is 10 or 11...sometimes later and she will wake around 6 or so, eat then go back to sleep. She has recently found her thumb which helps her soothe herself but also is an AWFUL habit my 5 year old struggles with.Whole 'nother issue :)

Nathan gets a little bit of everything. We breastfeed in the mornings, evenings and at night. During the day he gets mostly expressed breastmilk with one or two bottles of formula. He eats every 3 hours during the day and 5-6 at night.

I primarily nurse but Maddie does get usually one bottle every other day. She eats usually every two hours during the day but may have one stretch closer to 3 hours.
