How Should I Breast Feed My baby?

Breastfeeding depends upon the need of the child and is generally on demand when the baby is hungry, which varies from half n hour to three hours interval, but a baby of one to two months of age should be fed 8 to 10 times a day.

The more often you breast feed the more the milk supply grows. Its called responsive feeding and the baby loves snuggling to the mother whether hungry or not. This is the best way to establish a strong mother and baby bond.

Checking on whether is baby is properly latched is important too, otherwise the nipples get sore.

      Over a few months time the baby's feeding habit becomes more predictable, and the baby tends to go longer between the feeds after they have satisfied their hunger completely.

     After six months the breast feeding should continue along with outside food and by then both mummy and baby become down pat in feeding.

About Priyanka Rai


I am a dental surgeon, an army wife and a mother of a 30 months old daughter grooming her round the clock. Writing is my passion and when not writing I love to spend my time in the company of books and my daughter.My life changed completely two and a half years ago when my daughter was born. From being a working woman to a full-time mother was a tremendous transition but I cherish every moment of it. From the moment when I held her first till the time, I walked her to playschool every moment has been sheer bliss. I love talking to her, reading books to her and capturing her different moods and moments.
