It is advisable to feed your baby on demand, on his or her schedule.
Consider breast milk may be digested in an hour to two hours as opposed to formula
that can take 3 to 4 hours to become digested. That is why breast fed infants feed very frequently and it is not unusual for them to feed 10 t0 12 times in 24 hours. Newborns may loose a little bit of weight the first week and then start gaining.
