Breastfeeding Rhythm

Breastfeeding Rhythm

The Breastfeeding rhythm continuously changes in the course of development. The best Breastfeeding results are acquired when a healthy, full term baby is breastfed as required. In the first days, the Breastfeeding rhythm remains approximately 4–8 times a day. On the 3rd to 4th day the after birth of an infant, the frequency can climb to between 12 and 14 times in a day. It often levels off to between 2.5 to 3 hours within 24 hours.

It is normal for a child  to want to be breastfed even at night in the first weeks of life. High temperatures or restlessness and tension can without any glitch change this rhythm too.
