It is generally recommended that breastfeeding mothers aim to feed their babies at least 8-12 times in a 24-hour period to ensure that they are getting enough milk.
However, the frequency of feedings can vary widely and may be affected by factors such as the infant’s age, growth rate, and overall health.
If you need to be away from your baby for an extended period of time, it is generally recommended that you express breast milk using a breast pump so that it can be fed to your baby in your absence.
This can help to maintain your milk supply and ensure that your baby continues to receive the benefits of breast milk.
It is important to note that every baby is different and the best feeding schedule will depend on the needs of your individual child.
It is a good idea to discuss your breastfeeding concerns with a healthcare provider or a lactation consultant.
