Noon. I want to ask, until how old is the baby breastfed at least every 2 hours. Thanks…

1 Answer:

Hello Faujiah, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

The first few weeks after the baby is born, the baby should be breastfed at least every 2-3 hours or as the baby needs for several reasons:

The baby's stomach is still very small and can't hold much milk, so the baby gets hungry very quickly
Milk production is not stable so it is not necessarily sufficient for the baby to be full


Breastfeeding your baby every 2-3 hours is best done in the first 2 months. After 2 months of milk production is usually more stable and has a lot, the baby can drink well, and the stomach load is also bigger so you can start breastfeeding the baby less often (every 3-4 hours) and the bigger the baby, you can breastfeed. with a longer distance. Even so, you are still recommended to breastfeed according to the baby's needs (on demand). Sometimes there are babies who get hungry faster even though they are over 2 months old, so you should still breastfeed your baby if your baby is hungry.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
