Breastfeed when needed or every Three Hours?
Hi Helen

I have a question for you.

I breastfeed Valdemar (17 weeks old) every three hours or so, however, he is not seeking my breast, this is just a routine established by me.

I am in doubt, however, whether this is correct or whether I should wait breastfeed him until he aks for a feed ...

What is your opinion?

I would like to add that Valdemar eats very fast -ever since he was born he has been able to empty the breast in 6-7 minutes.

Regards Maibrit
