Many medical experts, including the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, strongly recommend breastfeeding exclusively (no formula, juice, or water) for 6 months. After the introduction of other foods, it recommends continuing to breastfeed through the baby’s first year of life.

How often should I breastfeed my baby? 

This decision depends on whether your baby prefers small more frequent meals or longer feedings. 

Newborn babies often want to feed:

Every 2-3 hours.

By 2 months: - every 3-4 hours

By 6 months every 4-5 hours.
You and your baby are unique, and the decision is completely up to you.
