Breastfeeding basics: how often should you nurse?
I nursed on demand with 7 of my 8 children so I nursed to feed them when they were hungry, I nursed to comfort them and I nursed them to sleep.
I did on demand too when they were little bitty. As they got older though we settled into a routine. Probably around three months or so. They both were lazy nursers though and it would take me about an hour to do both sides. Approximately 30 on each side.
I did/do on demand, as long as they wanted. But most of them have put themselves on a schedule by two months of age.
