Thanks. That's what I figured but sort of hoped for a different answer! I got into bad habits with DD - using the boob as a solution to everything - so am probably over-compensating this time and trying to be too strict!
Breast feeding on demand best. Your baby knows what he wants. My dd1 fed every couple of hours. As newborn it was every half hour! I don't know whether water would be a good idea in that heat in addition?
DS is EBF (5m) and I'm desperate to try to get him to go longer between feeds: he rarely goes even 2.5hrs, let alone 3hrs. I was planning on slowly forcing longer breaks but am now worried that this'll deny him the liquids he needs in this heat.
Is it safe to force a 3-4hr gap? Or shall I just continue to feed on demand and feel like I'm losing my mind I seem to spend so much of my time nursing
