I have a question about the 'feed every 2-3 hour rule'. I understand that you should feed your newborn every 2-3 hours and count from the moment you started breastfeeding rather than the end (eg, if you start at 10am, feed again at 12).
Just wondering how this applies to cluster feeding. My 2 week old is feeding for several hours at a time (usually feeds for 20-30 minutes, gets burped, falls asleep in my arms, wakes up 15 minutes later for more). This can go for up to 4 hours. It is particularly bad in the early to late afternoon (2pm - 530pm today). When he finally goes to sleep, do I still need to start feeding him again shortly after. I am not 100% certain how much milk he is getting, but having to wake him again for another feed 15 mins after he has gone to sleep is frustrating!
Any advice would be appreciated.
