I am concerned about the frequency of breastfeeding for my baby. Sometimes there is a 1-hour gap between feedings, while other times it's a 2-hour gap. Additionally, my baby is not gaining weight as expected. Could she be getting insufficient milk?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is normal for babies to have varying feeding patterns and intervals, so the duration between feedings can differ from one day to another. However, if your baby is not gaining weight as expected and you are worried about her milk intake, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional or lactation consultant. They can assess your baby's latch and feeding technique to ensure she is effectively extracting milk. They may also check for any underlying issues that could affect her ability to gain weight. Remember that every baby is different, and some may need more frequent feedings than others. Trust your instincts but seek professional guidance when needed to ensure your baby's well-being.

  Are you pumping your breasts as well? How much oz per session? Pumping helps with milk production and I advise you to pump as often as you can. I am also advising that you contact your pediatrician who can address the weight issue which is very important.

  Doctors advise that breast fed babies should be fed every 2 hours. During the first month of breastfeedung my baby, I did my best to keep that schedule. However, I am now feeding my baby whenever he seems hungry or at least every three hours..
