Lactation 101: How Often Should You Breastfeed

breast feeding

This is probably the most commonly asked question of all mothers. How often should I breastfeed? You probably get many different answers coming from perhaps your  nurse, pediatrician, and then a lactation consultant.

Generally speaking, you want the baby to feed every two to three hours from the beginning of a feed. Yes, if that first feeding is 45 minutes long, it’s not that soon after that you’re going to have to feed again.
