Babies at the age of 3 months should get exclusive breastfeeding until the baby is 6 months old. So if your baby is 3 months old, it is best if the baby only gets breast milk. But if only a little milk comes out, then it may be necessary to add formula milk. consult a pediatrician first if your wife is not breastfeeding.
If at this time your child only consumes 10-15 minutes of breast milk this could be a normal thing to happen. There are no specific standards that determine how much milk a baby should drink. However, the average baby drinks breast milk with a duration of about 15-20 minutes. In addition, babies can also stop breastfeeding on their own if they feel full. The average breast milk is given with a frequency of 7-9 times a day.
Therefore, if your wife is breastfeeding enough, it is advisable to exclusively breastfeed your baby. If your baby looks hungry then you can give breastmilk again at any time. Pay attention to the correct position of breastfeeding. Watch your child's weight regularly.
