My MCHN reccomends demand feeding. I told her i was doing that untill My sleep consultant (i dont see anymore) said not to feed ds under 3hrs as he's snack feeding and Not to offer the breast before sleep. Which i liked to do as it calmed ds down and was actually a sleep cue for him. She said im mixing up his hunger signs with his tired signs.
MCHN didnt either disagree or agree, she just said "but if he demands it, dont refuse him". Yet i was told different by the other lady..to make him go 3 hours between feeds.
im so confused. What is the difference between demand feeding and snack feeding?
