- Most women today work on a schedule, so scheduling your infants is a natural choice. Still, life often will get in the way; it’s okay if the babies sleep a few minutes longer so you can shower.
- It’s very important to keep a notebook and chart feeding times, poops, and wets. The hospital can assist you with a guide for the schedule.
- If you plan on feeding on demand, make sure each baby gets enough. It’s always better to tandem nurse. That way, your body knows how much milk to produce.
- If you are feeding with formula, schedules seem to work out even better. Feed every four hours.
- If you are nursing every two to three hours, do only fifteen minutes on each side so you do not get too sore.
