My LO is 2 months old. I've been feeding her 2-3 hours during the day regardless of whether she "demands" it or not and she goes about 6 hours at night without a feeding (yes, I'am very happy about it. Anyhow, today we had our 2 month checkup and the pediatrician recommended I begin to feed her on demand. She says babies can go 4-6 hours between feedings and that they can take in more (4-6oz). She weighed 10lbs at the appt (3lbs more than when she was born).
My question is is this a good idea? If you feed on demand, what is your schedule like? Will I lose my milk supply if I feed less frequently? I guess I worry because she was a lazy eater when she was born and then I also worry that I will lose my milk supply.
Please give me an idea of how your baby feeds if you feed her on demand. Thanks.
