I just want to ask, who came up with this rule and what fact is it even based on? This 'rule' was advice given to me on this site and the worst, and most regrettable thing i have ever done to my child. It might work for some babies but not all. I work full time, and we followed this 'rule' for about a month and a half. In that time, dd stopped sleeping through the night and woke up 8-9 times in the middle of the night to bf. Not okay or healthy. She also became incredibly fussy and cried and screamed all day. I mean, who could blame her, she was starving. She also started losing weight. After we stopped this and i let her father feed her pumped bm on demand ,and as much as she needed, she went back to normal. Thank god. I now feel the need to warn mothers you shouldn't listen to all coocoo babble you hear or read on the internet.
