General feeding

  • Babies should feed a MINIMUM of 8-10 times in a 24 hour period. This may mean having to wake a sleepy newborn. Eating more often is okay.
  • If your doctor has advised supplementing, follow that advice. EVERY time a supplement is given, pump to protect your milk supply. Use a high quality double electric pump on both breasts for 10-15 minutes. 
  • If you are painfully engorged, ice packs on breasts in between feedings and taking ibuprofen as directed on the package can help relieve discomfort. Feed baby at breast or pump every 2-3 hours.
  • Babies should produce diapers around the clock: 6+ wet diapers (after day 4 of life) and 3-4+ stools (by day 4 of life.) Track these using an app or pen + paper.
  •  If you are worried about your baby in the time between scheduling and seeing us for a consult, always consult your pediatrician and their feeding advice.
