Re: Is my LO feeding often enough?
with all the above. There are certainly some babies who do just fine on 5-6 feedings per day, but the average baby requires at least 8 and many babies require more than that. Since it can't hurt to nurse more than the baby demands, I think it makes sense to continue to cram in 2-3 extra feedings per day, and to avoid using tools that extend sleep stretches and/or time between feedings (e.g. swaddling, pacifiers).
