    Default How often does your 4 month old BF?

    Whoops he eleven weeks. Was originally on seven feeds combination of ebm and bf. like your lo he extended his night feeds so I increased his day feeds but now I wonder if I'm just feeding him too much. If your lo is having planty of wet nappies and gaining weight and happy they are getting enough. By same token if they not refusing extra bm is bit going to do them any harm IMO. Over feeding on formula is a bit diff.

    I would drop a feed just to see how it goes maybe

    Other option is to express for a day and see how many mls they taking on average. Rough guide is 150ml x weight divided by number of feeds. How much does bub weigh.
