He's been getting better at letting us know when he is hungry but he doesn't do it often enough and he doesn't eat well enough at each feed to let him totally dictate when and how much to eat. With Alex, I never had this problem. He ate often and he ate well. If he surprised us one day with a 4-5 hour sleep crash I didn't bother to wake him and instead just pumped.
Rory and Bourne's stats are almost identical. B1was6lb 5oz and dropped to 5 Lb 9 oz. once we got passed the jaundice, my pedi said to feed on demand. Whie e was jaundiced (and sooooooo sleepy) I had to feed at a min every 3hours. Of course, once he became alert, he didn't go more than 2hours without nursing but he was a lazy nurser.
