hi Priyanka !you need to keep a watch on the time. feed on one side for 15 minutes, burp the baby .give a gap and then feed on other side for again 15 minutes. Again burp the baby. Repeat the process again after a gap of 2 and 2 and a half hours.

Hi priyanka baby's tummy gets filled up by one breast feed.. or not.. it depends on the amount of milkthat u r producing.. if the amount of milk is more ..that u can feel .. then feeding from one is enough for next 2 hrs.. after feeding try to make the baby burp .. is by taking the baby on the support of one shoulder and gently massaging the back in short strokes from up to down and repeat movement... Don't over feed if u can access the milk flow of yours is more..

Helo priyanka baby dont know whether is their tummy is full or not. Don't have timing schedules for feeding. Feed your baby whenever they demand for it. Feed for sometime and you have to unlatch by putting your pinky finger in the side of baby's mouth and move so they will open their mouth and you can unlatch. If you breastfeed your baby for short time baby will only get foremilk, this milk is just what baby receives in the beginning of breastfeeding whereas hindmilk is the milk at end of feeding. The hind milk is normally high in fat. So both milk is needed for a baby at breastfeeding. The foremilk helps baby to overcome thirst whereas hindmilk helps in giving proper fat and nutrients for baby. Does she spit milk in curdled form? If it is so then it is digested milk there is nothing to worry. If just he spits the milk then it is what he had excess is coming. Empty breasts at one side and offer next. Dont give baby anything other than breastmilk. For few days or months baby will be like this because their stomach foodpipe are small and dont need excess milk so they will spit up.
