  • Every baby is different. Your baby sounds about right. Doctors don't know much about nursing. A lactation consultant can give you MUCH more accurate info. Feed on demand, and he will tell you how often he needs to eat. Dot let your doctor freak you out or make you think your baby isn't doing it right!

  • MY dd is only 6 weeks old, but she eats every 2-4 hours during the day and every 4-8 hours at night. It really depends on her mood and growth spurt.
