My first baby, she is a very deep sleeper and most of the time i have to wake her up to feed her,
her pediatrician suggested formula during the day, breast milk at night because she was getting dehydrated she was drinking a normal 2 ounces each feeding but now she will sleep past the four hour mark if i dont wake her up. i dont let her go past 3 hours and sometimes she only eats 1 in a half ounces, and sometimes she'll drink up to 4 ounces. she likes both the formula and breast milk she's not a picky eater at all she just doesn't seem to wanna eat sometimes and other times she drinks like 4 ounces! is this ok?
is this normal?

Another great example of how the medical community sabotages the breastfeeding relationship. DROP THE FORMULA!!! Once you introduce the formula it is a slippery slope. Everything and more is in breastmilk. Formula is NEVER the better option in any normal case. Feed baby on demand for as long as baby desires. Good Luck and double check any hints that doctor gives you because he seems very misinformed.
