Nostrum replied to topic Demand Feed or Routine???

Hi, I demand fed, and still do. Kylara has made her own routine which works perfectly for me. In my opinion, you shouldn't start a routine for the first few weeks at least, as you're only just est...

Ky gets hers in a fortnight. She was really good last time, so fingers crossed she'll be okay this time around too! Man, your baby makes mine sound like a monster! She's about 7.3kg!

I'd say she's finding her appetite, and bringing your supply in. Its pretty common to do very frequent feeds like that for the first few weeks. She can't overfeed herself. Be more worried about y...
