Month Breastfeeding Bottle Feeding

Frequency: Every 2-2 1/2 hours during the day and every 5 hours at night.

Duration: Initially 10 minutes on the first breast and at least 10 minutes on the second breast.

After 10 days up to 20 minutes to get the hind milk - the milk in the back of the breast which is highest in fat and richest in calories - then offer the second breast if your baby is interested.
