Encourage mom to get to know her baby and trust her instincts.
Encourage mom to feed her baby when he communicates that he is ready to eat.
Discourage timed feedings or scheduled feedings. Remember “8 or more in 24.”
Discourage pacifiers and supplements that can interfere with baby communicating with mom.
If mom is concerned, suggest she call her Lactation Consultant. Mom wants reassurance that breastfeeding is ok, and if it’s not, she wants help fixing breastfeeding.
