Your doctor is wrong, you should feed your baby whenever he/she needs to be fed especially if you are nursing. Having your baby nurse often builds up your milk production and keeps it from drying up also which is a great thing! Plus, babys who nurse do fall asleep on the breast and that will make him hungry sooner since he didn't get a full feeding. Try keeping him awake, talk to him, play with him, rub his feet, etc. I can't fully breastfeed anymore cause Im not producing enough, but I still nurse my daughter whenever I possibly can (in hope to get more milk, hasn't worked yet but I am hoping!!) So feed on demand, dont listen to what your doctor said!
