Sorry that should be 'every' hour - not 'very'!!
I'm posting on behalf of a friend who is committed to trying to breastfeed this time around (on first occasion her premature baby was in hospital a month and her supply didn't cope well with only pumping and feeding tubes.)
Her baby is now 9 days old and she is going around 2 hours during the day but the last couple of nights she's been feeding every hour/ hour and a half. She understands there's a big spectrum of normal but is there anything I can tell her. She's not comfortable with co-sleeping and has memories of her formula feeding baby home at 5 weeks with much longer intervals at night. I suggested a growth spurt but is this realistic at 9 days?
