How often does your 3 month old bf baby eat in 24 hrs? If you pump how much do you give them in a bottle and how often?

Also just curious because I have looked online and cant find any really good comparisons. What do you feed you newborn-2yr old? See poll.

My 3 month old eats every 4.5-5 hours from 6 am to 7 pm and then once at night... so he only eats 4-5 times in 24 hours.

That's basically exactly what mine does. It's just nice to hear from other people. I don't know if it's my area or what but I'm seriously one of two moms that I know that breastfeeds. Out of probably a good twenty woman who have kids under the age of 1. I know there is not a norm. but he just recently started putting almost another hour in between his feedings and I just thought he might be going through a growth spurt because he seems to sleep more here in the last few weeks also.
