The Big Question

Posted by | Breastfeeding, Feeding | 3 Comments

The Big Question: How often do I need to breastfeed? Your sweet baby needs breast milk around 8-12 times within 24 hours. You will know he has had enough at each feeding when your baby continues to turn his head, loses interest in eating, or falls asleep. Be happy because he is satisfied and full. Trust him to set the pace.

How Much Breastmilk?

Posted by | Breastfeeding, Feeding | No Comments

Your precious new baby has a tiny stomach so it doesn’t take much breastmilk to fill her up. She will want to be fed 8 to 12 times each day and will feel full quickly. You should know how much she will grow and need in first two weeks of her life; babies normally gain 4-7oz a week the first few weeks. Mom, you are giving an amazing gift to her…a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Start with rice cereal first, then after your baby has mastered rice cereal, move to veggies, then to some yummy puréed fruits. They’re so healthy for him, you’ll both be smiling.
