Hello, my DD is 3weeks old today. We've been working with a LC at my hospital since she was about 1week old because I had low milk supply then. Since then, I had pumped after each feeding and built up enough supply, so that now I no longer pump and only feed on demand. When she naps, or through the night, she can go 3 hours between feedings, however, if she's awake, she can't go much longer than 1-1.5 hours between feedings. In the evenings around 6-9pm, she often feeds every hour, and I can attribute that to perhaps cluster feeding, but sometimes in the mornings she needs to feed every 1.5 hours too.
My questions are: Why this sort of pattern? Is she getting enough milk? She is making plenty of wet diapers and has several BMs a day, but I'm concerned she isn't getting enough if she needs to feed every 1.5 hours while awake but only feeds every 3 hours when asleep. Also, is there any way to stretch out that time while she is awake or is time our friend, and hopefully as she grows she'll be able to last longer? Thanks in advance!
