I was just wondering if I have to feed my dd every 3-4 hrs am I supposed to start timing at the beginning of her feedings? Does that mean even tho it takes nearly 2, 2 1/2 hrs to feed her and finally get her back to sleep that I have to feed her again in 2 hrs?Answer Question

Feed on demand and don't look at the clock. This is my experience ~ I would feed almost every 2 hours and that was from the start time of the feeding. I would breastfeed DS for around a half an hour (by the time you burp in between breasts and resituate) and then he would be ready again in an hour and a half. I would say drop the bottle feedings and stick with just the breast (especially if it is taking so long for baby to drink the bottle). Also, don't forget that the sucking is different for bottle feeding as opposed to breast feeding so that could also be adding to the long feed.
