I would say:
- try and feed from both boobs if possible. Always try to drain one boob fully then offer the second breast. Use a wet facewasher to keep bub awake if bub is falling asleep during a feed. A baby that takes a bigger feed will have longer between feeds.
- does bub have gas? Burping regularly may help. If bub has a build up of gas then bub will take smaller feeds and hence feed more often.
- try and distract bub after a feed: go for a walk outside, play in front of the mirror. Even if you stretch bub a little each day that's ok.
- at the 2 hour mark check bubs signs: could bub be after comfort instead of a feed? If so would offering a cuddle help? Or is bub actually tired and a sleep may help. Many people (myself included in the early days) confuse tired signs for hunger signs.
- above all if there is an emotional cry and bub is really hungry then feed bub even if it is earlier than the scheduled feed in any routine. Just offer a top up at the scheduled feed time to keep the routine on track.
