If breastfeeding, your milk supply should now be established and, depending on baby’s weight, you will be encouraged to feed your baby every three hours. Your baby will be going through growth spurts and will be hungrier than before, so the feeding routine will need to be adjusted accordingly.
This can be a challenging time for both mother and baby, and having a professional Maternity Nurse to care for you night and day makes this stage far easier to manage.
Thankfully these growth spurts tend to last no longer than 48 hours, after which your baby will be happy and settled once again.
At four weeks some babies can develop milk spots (also known as baby acne), and this is also the time when reflux, either acid or silent, can develop.
