Shall I stir the pot some more and let everyone know that she will be introduced to solids at 4 months... Judge away now![/QUOTE]
I can help stir that pot... I started solids at 4 months its going great!
I don't think this is the thread to make clear your disagreement with someone's methods. Offer some advice, give the OP some support and leave it at that.
Obviously do what is best for your baby, but I don't think that stretching feeds to 3-4hrly is likely to result in dehydration.
As for the celebrating breastfeeding thing- I am celebrating breastfeeding a lot more this time around than I was with my DS1 who fed 2hrly around the clock!
This might be a slight derail, but AmyEL, I noticed you said you were EBF. I was just wondering how much you generally give per feed and in total per day?
Just curious as i am expressing to feed my almost 12 week old (inverted nipples), and i have just kind of muddled through to figure out how much baby wants, and how often, and wondered how this compares with what other people do.
I generally give feeds of 120ml about every 2 hrs during the day, or longer between feeds if baby doesn't seem hungry or is asleep etc. We don't have a set routine, and I just try to take his cues. I feed him up before bed, and he is a good night time sleeper, but not so good during the day.
