well I hope I did not make a mistake but i fed him anyway and he fell asleep I just don't want to make his tummy ache from to much milk. and it was to late to call the lactation nurse.

You did GREAT!! Follow your little one's ques. If he seems hungry go ahead and feed him. Like you said with breastfeeding he gets the perfect amount no need to worry but the downside is you never truly know what the amount is that baby drinks. So following his ques like you did is perfect because, who knows, when he breastfeeds he may eat more than you have in the bottle. You did a GREAT job following your instinct. Big high five! Way to go mama!

My son used to feed every hour when he was a newborn.. Give him what he wants when he wants... Good job. The more you feed him the more milk you will make and the more milk you make the more there will be when he IS hungry. Therefore, the feedings will space out... Never heard of a baby over eating. Breast milk is perfect food and cannot harm him.. Follow your gut. You're doing a good job.
