Sorry for the weird thread title. Could someone please explain to me how breastfeeding works in terms of dropping feeds.
My older child was formula fed and it was easy to know when to drop feeds. She would cry for more and then not need to drink for longer so as the quantity increased the frequency decreased until she turned 1 and then I swapped to cows milk in a silly cup.
With breastfeeding I have no idea how it's works. Do the babies just gradually drop feeds as they increase the quantity or do I need to initiate dropping feeds? She's only 1 month old now so I assume it won't happen anytime soon but for example how many feeds could I anticipate her having at say 3 months, 6 months etc.
