He eats every 2.5-3 hours during the day and usually 6-8 hours after going to bed.

Hi, I'm new here and just posted an introduction but thought I'd jump right in and answer. I hope I'm doing this right.

Lily is nursing about every 1.5-2 hours for 45 minutes or so. She's getting mighty chunky!

My integrity hasbeen questioned and I've been accused of lying. I shouldn't have shared so much of myself online, I just got too excited. This is goodbye.

Forgot to say what he usually does at night, lol.
He usually goes to "bed" aroudn 8pm, and will sleep 3-4 hours and wake up to eat. From then on out, he wakes pretty much every 2 hours until 6 or 7 am when he is awake for the day. Sometimes almost quite literally, as this boy HATES to sleep in the daytime.

We are mainly nursing, and Connor eats every 1.5-2.5 hrs during the day, and at night he has gone as much as 7 hours between feedings (once). Unfortunately, that 7 hours started at 7pm and I was sooo not sleepy enough to go to bed then, lol. But I think I did get to sleep around 9:30, so got to sleep until 2am without being woken up!

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.

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.

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 :)
