    Default HELP with BF 9 month DS

    Hello



    I am BF / giving formulation to my DS as I work 4 days out of 7. Just wondering how long I should be feeding him for? Only seems to feed for 5 -10 minutes and feeds every 2 hours overnight? Should I be offering breast every 2 hours during day? What's other mothers experience of this?

    At that age dd was feeding frequently day and night, but I always demand fed her.

    Do you offer breast at regular times in the day and formula at other times?

    Five minute feeds are common in older babies because they're very efficient at getting milk.

    Hopefully someone else can offer advice.
