Boob Scoop: The advice of feeding a baby on demand can be challenging when you are tired and feeding frequently throughout the day. However, feeding on demand helps to maintain good milk supply and signals a mother's body to produce the right amount of milk for her baby. Although the phrase "feeding on demand " is generally applied to breastfeeding babies, it's actually how we continue to eat throughout our lives. That is, we eat when our body signals hunger not when the clock strikes a certain time.
