ok...I added up the times I wrote down today....By 6pm tonight - we spent 3 hours and five minutes just feeding Rachel. (since 7:30am this morning). We fed her 15 times in the course of the day and this is all in 10-15 minute segments. It doesn't take into account all the time we watch her for signs of hunger, or hold her because she is unhappy, etc..It doesn't take into account the added stress of watching for spells, or wondering why her cry sounds different or not.
The interesting thing for me about this amount was that this wasn't even a bad day.
