    Question Confusion about block-feed and timing

    If I want to block feed every 2 hours, then whenever my DS wants to nurse within a 2 hour period I would feed him from one side, right? For example, between 12 PM-2 PM I would offer only right breast.. But what happens if the next time he wants to feed is at 5 PM? Do I offer left breast since I havent fed on it or do I offer right breast because I am doing a 2 hour block and he wants to feed outside of the 2 PM - 4 PM window?

    The way I do it is twice on one side. Its okay to cheat a little and go back and forth if they are getting too impacted.

    Like PPer I do twice on each side - unless one feeding is just a little snack - then I miht go 3 times on a side...
