tiktok I asked at the time! The doctor seemed genuinely surprised that I wasn't FF, and didn't really know about timing - she suggested asking the pharmacist. So I did, and he was lovely, but didn't see any problem with being able to know when he would be feeding! I think he thought I was saying that he doesn't feed at exactly the same time every day, and was trying to reassure me it would be fine, rather than at any time his next feed could either be 20 minutes away, or 3 hours away and there is never a way of knowing!
I didn't know if this was a feeding or health question, so apologies if it's in the wrong place!
DS (7 weeks) has been prescribed ranitidine for his reflux. The paed said to give it 3 times a day, 30 mins before a feed. He is exclusively BF on demand, and has absolutely no pattern to his eating at the moment. He is also generally a very frequent feeder, sometimes every hour.
Trying to guess when he'll next feed and time the dose 30 mins before seems impossible, and I can't imagine giving him the medicine and then trying to hold him off for 30 mins before feeding! Will it still work if I just space doses evenly through the day, and continue to feed on demand?
