hi there just wondering how often my 4 day old should be breasfeeding?? my milk came in yesterday and the nurses told me that she shouldnt need feeding any more than every 3 hours.... just wondered if this was correct or it should be more less??
i feel like a first time mum again
Mine was 3 hourly, but even now at 4 months every now and then she will decide an hour or two hours later that she is still hungry.
I think the general rule is 3-4 hourly, but that doesn't mean your little one won't want it 2 hourly. As long as you feel she is getting enough, having the 5+ heavy wet nappies, then go with whatever she wants. I demand fed, and still do really. If you have any worries it's worth ringing the ABA helpline, they really are great.
