    Default Not sure when to feed -11 wks

    Ive almost been programed to feed all the time and in particular when she wakes from a nap. Can I wait longer? Any sign of fuss I bring her to the breast.

    At just 11 weeks? I think you can try other methods of soothing before offering the breast, but I don't know why you would. In my experience, soothing with the breast works almost 100% of the time, whereas using some other method is going to work maybe 10% of the time, if you're lucky. In addition, while you can use other soothing methods, you don't want to use them to stretch out the time between feedings. An 11 week-old baby needs to feed frequently, because infant tummies are tiny and breastmilk digests fast.
