Ebf schedule for 3 month old

I am working hard at switching from EPing to EBFing DS. So far I am BF in the am and pm and he takes 3 to 4 4 oz bottles while I work 10 hr days. While still EPing, he eould rake 5 5 oz bottles a day. Going to try full day EBFing this weekend all day and see how it goes. Wondering what other moms of 12 month old schedules are like?

Re: Ebf schedule for 3 month old

  • I'm guessing you mean 12 week old since the title says 3 months :)

    When DD was 3 months old, she was still nursing every 1.5 to 2 hours during the day, and every 3 to 5 at night.  But we definitely weren't scheduled - if she was fussy or seemed to be rooting around, I would just offer to feed (and 99% of the time she was happy to do so).  Just watch his cues!

  • We EP'd for the first 8 weeks then I decided to start BFing.  I returned to work when he hit 12 weeks so now I pump 3 times at work and get about 4.5 - 5 oz total each pump and EBF while at home.  He eats 3 -  4oz bottles at DC from 7:30a to 4:30p. While at home he nurses every 2.5 to 3 hrs.  Transitioning from EPing to BFing was hard for me because I always felt at first he wasn't getting enough because I couldn't see his intake.  It took me about a week to get over it after seeing soaking wet diapers throughout the day. GL it's so much easier to nurse.

  • My 12 week old is EBF and feeds typically every 2 to 2.5 hours. If she takes an extra long nap sometimes it might be 3 to 3.5 hours. I just go off her cues and feed on demand. She gets up once a night between 2-4am.
