My 23 day old son is on BM during the day time and only in night I was giving him 30ml FM . Yesterday, I tried putting him on BM completely and so I first Ioffered him at 9pm (feeding cycle ended at 9:30) and he slept peacefully. At 11:45, I woke him and started feeding again. Now the fun begins, till 2:30 he was drinking milk... doing potty... and then again hungry and ready for next feed. I tried all possible ways but all waste. So at 3 am we offered him FM 30ml. Out of which he drank only 10-15ml and then could make out that he is not interested. So we left the remaining one. I took him in my godhi and then again he wanted to have my milk. But after sucking for sometime he slept off finally at 4am ....

Moms pls help me deal this situation!! @#

Feeling so bad. ... should i go to lactation consultant... Am I not getting enough supply to satisfy his hunger.

I want to feed him BM only and ready to all hardwork and sleepless nights

Breastfeeding Basics: How Much And When

No problem. Babies on bm r hungry as soon as thy urinate. It's normal. Gv him without noticing d time of his feed. Relax!

Reeti exclusive breastfeeding is no easy job.. it's tedious, tiring, painful but the benefits to the babies are uncountable. That's why all the ebf moms are appreciated for the sacrifice. Your baby is just 3 weeks so the pattern you have mentioned is correct. Unlike formula BM is easily digestible that's why he got hungry soon,feed him on demand if he has achieved his birth weight. No need to wake him up and feed. It's been 4 months since I slept at a stretch for 5 hrs. All the best to you, do not give up.

Rebecca Prakash His birth weight was 3 kg then it was 2.91 and again after few days back to 3 kg. Current weight I don’t know. So if he is sleeping then I should not wake him up after 2 hours?

Yes you shouldn't. Start feeding him on demand.

Thanks Rebecca😘😘😘 This was big help

Rebecca Prakash Day 2 without FM yehhhh ... yesterday he slept from 4 am- 10 am.... Is this much gap without food is okay ?

Oh wow Reeti good job, okay 6 hrs at a stretch but I don't think he will continue it. May be a day or 2 he might sleep for long hrs. Sleeping at a stretch for 4 or 5 hrs is good but if you see him dehydrated then wake up and feed as it is summer.
