How often should I feed my newborn baby?

Wide range of normal: There is a wide range of normal feeding times, but babies at this age should certainly go no longer than 4 hours between feedings. Most feed every 2-3 hours. The key is that your baby is having 4-6 wet diapers per day which suggests that they are well hydrated. I would discuss with your pediatrician.
