    In my case and for most of my friends the super frequent feeding only lasts for the first 3 months while they are establishing your supply. After that things settle down. Despite the frequent feeding, after the initial getting breastfeeding established it is so much easier and more convenient than FF as you don't have to prepare anything

    My DS fed every 30 mins til he weaned at around 10 months. I tried bottles after getting PND from lack of sleep during the night but he would drink that then want to comfort suck anyway!

    I'm hoping third time lucky lol

    Formula is different for a baby to digest, too.
    Colostrum is super-concentrated and higher in sugar than formula, so nb babies need more volume to meet their nutritional requirements if they are having formula. BF babies also tend to lose a bit more weight in the first few days than FF babies because of the lower volume feeds.
