I had my baby on the 27th he is 2 days old. I was kept in the hospital an extra day cause he wasnt eating properly. They wanted him to eat 25ml every 2 hours. He couldnt eat that much. So one of the nurses said give him 20-25ml every 3 hours. Its working. well he likes to suck on his bottom lip and his hands. My Mom is freaking out saying he is hungry and giving me signs. Should I stray from a schedule or should I stick with it?
Also... How will I know when to up his feedings?

Feed him when he wants to eat but make sure you write it down when you feed him. Also write down diaper changes pee and poo. The doctor will ask you how much he's eating and how many wet and soiled diapers, so make sure you know.

At that stage they should eat every 1-2 hrs for breastfed or breastmilk babies and usually 2- 3 hrs for formula babies. You'll know when he's hungry. When he's hungry he will start screaming and let you know. Don't go over three hours without feeding him and you should be fine. RELAX already....you'll know.
