I have been feeding on demand and continue to do so but I wonder if it maybe beneficial now (mainly in the day) to follow some sort of loose schedule with feeding.
I’ve noticed he’s changed recently and wants to feed less. When he was younger and grumpy, if I put him on the boob he would feed and settle. But now he will push away from the boob if he doesn’t want it. I know you can’t over feed a breastfed baby but I do think maybe the time has come to add a little routine to the feeding
Has anyone had any luck doing so?
It might be worth writing down the times LO feeds over the next few days. You might find there is actually a bit of a schedule going on
