Re: Can someone please explain block feeding!
I did one side for every 2 daytime feedings. (4-6 hours typically). DD rarely slept for longer than 3 hours at night so that was less of an issue but the times she did I just did the math and compared how long it had been since I used each boob and how long it could be before she ate again. Then I just decided based on that and tried not to leave one side in "time out" for too long for comforts sake.
We had to do 2 rounds of block feeding to get to "normal" and after the second time we went to one side per feeding except for the one before bed and occasionally others if DD still wants more. She is 5 mo now and we still only do one side per feeding (minus bedtime)
