This video answers common questions about breastfeeding. A lactation consultant says that as long as your baby is getting enough milk, it doesn’t matter how long or how often baby feeds. She says sleeping with baby in your room can help you catch early feeding cues, so you can feed your baby before crying starts. The video has phone numbers for getting help with breastfeeding.
