Pediatrician suggests to wake up my 16 weeks baby by night n breast feed every 3 hr.I used to do till 13 weeks. Does this decrease milk production?
Breastfeeding: After the first couple months of life, we do not generally tell you to wake up your baby to feed. At this age, your baby should be sleeping more through the night. I would not recommend waking your baby up to feed. You will usually be able to continue with milk production without having to feed constantly during the night! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Interrupt feeds: It is unclear why babies bite, it is however agreed on that they do not intend to displease, so interrupt feeds, indicate to baby that bites are not acceptable, check to be sure baby is well positioned/ latching on well and that milk flow is not too fast. May be a way of letting you know to stop the feeds when full. Be consistent with your response to this behavior and it will pass. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Would be unusual: If you have a healthy supply of breast milk and baby is growing fast, it may seems that way. So, when baby is hungry, feed him/her..When he/she stops sucking, then stop. Regular follow-up with doc will help guide you how to ensure proper growth and development of your precious one. It is unusual to over feed a breastfed baby. Bottle-feed is a different story, as it is easy. Congrats and good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Planned on breastfeeding. Now it looks like I will probably have my baby premature. What can I do?
Breast feeding.: The desire to breast feed should not be impeded by a preterm birth. Using a breast pump to stimulate milk production should be implemented soon after the delivery. Freezing the milk as soon as it is pumped and stored for later use, will be as beneficial to the baby, as if you were able to nurse him. Which you will be able to do as the preterm baby gains in maturity and weight. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If you look at the specifics, creating breast milk for baby requires metabolic work on your part ( that is quite passive).Over 1yr your breasts will use your body energy to create roughly 500-1000 cal/day for baby.
