Re: Putting DS on a schedule at 1 mos.?
Congratulations on the new baby! It sounds like you've done a terrific job being responsive and giving so far. And while I'm sure it's not what you want to hear, I really do think you should continue to do what you've been doing. Schedules are the perfect recipe for an unhappy mama and a miserable baby, and in the worst cases they can lead to reduced milk supply and a baby who isn't growing because he isn't getting enough to eat. Milk supply works on the supply = demand principle, so babies who aren't allowed to demand enough can have trouble maintaining a good supply.
As the PPs pointed out, breastmilk digests fast and completely, and newborn tummies are tiny. Many breastfed babies are hungry about 90 minutes after they started eating, and if they take a long time to feed, one feeding often runs into another.
My only concern is that your baby's very long feedings and frequent demands to feed are related to some sort of difficulty transferring milk. (This is my hang-up because it happened to me.) An accurate diaper count and a weight check can help you to gauge whether or not this is a problem for you. Have you seen a lactation consultant, preferably an IBCLC? I think you might really benefit from some hands-on help.
