Re: new mom and confused with feeding
with LLLMeg. Especially regarding the timing of feedings!
WRT demand feeding, you want to feed on demand from the very beginning as long as that means the baby is nursing enough- which, as LLLMeg said, is generally around 10-12 times a day. However, due to issues like prematurity, sleepiness, or jaundice, some babies cannot be fed on demand because they won't nurse enough if left to their own devices. With non-demanding babies, you want to feed the baby more often than he/she seems to want.
