Good pint Shawnn, ketogenic diets can reduce the frequency of seizures, but as long as carbs are limited and this is a child, I'd think feed whenever hungry. Or at least follow a typical schedule.

Unless your child is also on the ketogenic diet, I would say that frequency of feeding is up to you. If your child IS on a medical diet plan as well, then this is a question for your physician.

West syndrome is a seizure disorder; why would it affect how many times you feed your child?
