yo interpreto que debe continuarse todo el tiempo | siempre | sin descansar | continuo

en mi opinión podría ser algo así como:

agree  brainfloss: Si se trata de explicarselo a una madre en consultorio, por ejemplo, creo que "continuar la alimentación cada 3 horas durante el día y la noche" es suficientemente claro.

continue to feed every 3 hours around the clock
cada 3 horas durante las 24 horas del día


Explanation:
Lo que suena extraño es que digan 'continue to feed'. Es algo así como 'contiñue la alimentación', pero creo que no hace falta. 'around the clock' sería durante las 24 horas del día, pero si ya dicen anteriormente, 'cada 3 horas' uno pensaría que de ahí se desprende que es durante las 24 horas del día. pareciera que la clave está en continue to feed.
