As the title reads, how often does your 9 mth old feed in a 24hr period?
As background: On Tuesday night I developed mastitis, and because it was after hours I saw a GP at a different clinic to normal. After asking how old my son is (9mths) and how often he feeds (about 6 times in a 24hr period) I was told he should only be having 3 breastfeeds per 24hours at this age. Not impressed with unwanted advice unrelated to why I went to the GP in the first place!!
Although I don't plan on changing anything, and am not concerned at all it did get me wondering about what is average for this age. 3 feeds seems so little to me (but obviously they are all different)
