Does a  7 week old fetus sleep?

My 7 months old daughter takes feed at least 3 times in her sleep at night.. is that normal??

My 7 months old daughter takes feed at least 3 times in her sleep at night.. is that normal??

It's not typical: Most babies at this age, especially if they're eating solids 3 times a day, do not wake up this frequently at night. It could be that she wants the comfort of being held (and fed) when she wakes up, and not that she's truly hungry. Most babies this age are ready for night weaning, so you could try to wean 1 feed at a time. If she wakes up (for the mid feed) try to comfort her w/o feeding. ...Read more

My 7 month old baby won't sleep only 10 min a day and he just cries and winges he's healthy. At night he wakes up every 2hrs very bad sleeper help!

My 7 month old baby won't sleep only 10 min a day and he just cries and winges he's healthy. At night he wakes up every 2hrs very bad sleeper help!

Being a parent: This common situation can be frustrating. But, it is your duty to teach him to sleep. This means you must let him be. Once in bed you must not pick him up. Avoid interacting with him regardless of the fuss. You can gently check on him, but let him not win the attention he is seeking when he should be sleeping. ...Read more

2 month old baby. Bottle fed. She drinks about 1 to 1.5 oz milk a time. Every hour intervals. At night she sleeps for 7 hours and not fed . Proper?

Pumped milk, right?: Babies drink breast milk, either pumped or directly from the breast. Formula (not cow milk) is an option if there is not enough breast milk. In nature, nobody knows how much a baby drinks, because she drinks from the breast. That being said, if a normal healthy 2 month-old wakes every hour and only drinks 1.5 oz, she can be gradually increased to 3 oz per feeding and will likely sleep better. ...Read more

My daughter 4 mo will only take 4oz at every feeding 7 times a day. 3 1/2 oz if fed baby food too. Should she be eating more? She weighs 14lbs 11 oz.

28-32oz a day is ok: The total daily intake is average and her weight sounds good, unless she was a really big baby at birth.. Many babies this age prefer a larger quantity and fewer bottles. If feedings take a long time, check the nipple flow. Also, some babies spit up if they take too much at a time, or they just prefer to be "grazers.". ...Read more

Should i wake my healthy 4 month old baby for feedings during the night?

Should i wake my healthy 4 month old baby for feedings during the night?

No: Generally, once an infant starts to sleep through the night (around 2 months) it is not necessary to wake the baby up to feed him/her, assuming the baby feeds well during the day, is wetting several diapers a day, appears healthy, and is growing well. It is important not to interrupt a healthy baby's sleep/wake cycle. ...Read more
