My daughter is 2. 5 month old. She is breastfed and weighs 3. 5 kgs. She demands to be fed almost after every 1 - 1. 5 hour. Every feeding session is around 20 to 40 mints. She sleeps many times while feeding. When she sleeps and stops sucking, I put her to bed and then after 5-10 mints, she again starts crying. Is she remaining hungry? Should I start formula milk also? I dont want to start formula because when I press my breasts after feeding her, there is still milk in them.. So its that she is not taking out the whole of it. What should I do?

You should continuously feed the baby for 10-15 minutes.if the child sleeps in betwene wake her up in lap only and feed.this way child will get the amount of milk and will sleep for 2-3 hours and won't wake up on between.also weigh the child once to know how is the weight gain Take Care
