Advantages of Breastfeeding on a Schedule (BFBN)

When I was pregnant with Caroline, I read SO many posts and articles about how to be successful at breastfeeding. According to everything I read, it was key to feed on demand. I was really drawn to using schedules with her, but it just didn’t appear that it could be done while keeping my supply up (from what I’d read).

Up to the point of delivery, I was convinced that I’d have to feed on demand, and was thus planning on doing so. I’d saved all sorts of baby schedules, but was resigned to the idea that it just wasn’t going to work.

Luckily, since Caroline was born at 37 weeks, the doctors put us on a feeding schedule immediately. I am so glad the doctors pointed us in the right direction for our family. We started using schedulesimmediately, and never turned back!

Caroline is now 3 years old. I was able to breastfeed for a full year, all while using schedules. I couldn’t be happier with how that first year turned out.

Hi! I'm Christine...a stay-at-home mum to two tiny humans. My constant focus is having my home run as smoothly as possible. Keeping two kids alive, and maintaining my sanity is also a priority. Most Saturday nights, you can find me hunkered down watching Grey's Anatomy, and hopefully nibbling on some chocolate. :)
