Breastfeeding on Demand…

Postnatal Care

Did you know that how often your baby needs to feed is based on your own unique breastmilk storage capacity and milk synthesis rate? Neither of these factors are up for manipulation and are unique to each mother/baby dyad.

What does this mean?

It means scrap the 3hrly, 4hrly routines which are poor non evidence based advice, and feed your baby on demand!
i.e A baby of a mum with a smaller storage capacity will feed much more frequently than a baby who’s mother has a large storage capacity.

However, on average, both these babies will drink similar quantities of milk in a 24hr period.

So, watch your baby – not the clock!
