Frequency / Duration
During breastfeeding, there should be no rules regarding the frequency or duration of breastfeeding
The number and duration of feedings vary greatly from one baby to another and from one day to the next in the same baby, depending on their nutritional needs and physical proximity. In addition, it is the feedings that condition the milk production: the more the child takes milk, the more the mother produces it. These two notions explain that there must be no rules concerning the number or duration of feedings. During the first weeks of breastfeeding, most children often ask for up to 8 to 12 times a day. This should not be interpreted as a problem, especially not a lack of milk.
