1. Feed more often - and to offer three, four or more 'sides' when she can 2. depends on age of baby - older the baby, the better, and also, will help if she feeds more often at weekends 9and at night?) 3. 'should' is a daft word to use with feeding...mothers' choices, and babies' needs, vary anyway....it is certainly normal to wake to feed for a long time and normal to respond to this with feeding 4. 'step backwards' implies that the role of parenting is to insist on a routine - routines can be useful for bathing, washing the floor, cooking and eating, but none of them are essential to development. You would not think routines would be helpful to regulate kissing, comforting, talking, s*x , general human interaction, for adults living in the same house...and as a baby gets older, breastfeeding falls into the interaction category more and more. If he's on solid food, then it's convenient to have this at meal times (though hardly essential for nutrition or health)....breastfeeding can happen at any time, as a form of interaction and re-connection (esp important and nice when mum is back at work!).
