Should I feed my 10 week old premie every time she slaps her lips??

My daughter always seems hungry ever after I nurse her. The doctors say feed her on demand but I'm afraid I might over feed her.

  • You cannot overfeed when you are breastfeeding! Keep feeding on demand, your baby knows what she needs.
