Feed as baby wakes : Babies develop a better schedule if you feed as they wake up. Baby has strength from the rest & can take a good feed before tiring. Then do diaper changes & cleaning. Playing after cleaning allows good mommy time. As baby tires they will settle if you put them down. They do not sleep longer if fed before sleep, they have more night waking because they have been taught to need food to settle. ...Read more

Are bottle fed babies just as healthy?

Unfortunately NO: Breastmilk is nature's perfect food for babies; formula is not nearly as good. Breastfed babies have better immune function (less infections), less chance of dying in their first year, lower risk of allergies, Type 1 diabetes and obesity and better cognitive development. Moms who breast feed lose more weight, have less depression & breast cancer! PLEASE BREASTFEED! See http://tinyurl.com/o85tl7j ...Read more

Define hunger: By 3.5 months a kid can get its fingers in its mouth and satisfy its pleasure of touching the lips by sucking fingers constantly.That is not hunger, that is fun.They will often take extra feed if offered, but if you kid is growing well without solids, they are not needed. A pacifier would be a better investment for many. Hunger= empty stomach, not wanting to suck a lot. ...Read more

Should my 3 months old baby be feeding every 3 hours? She's excusively breast feed

More or less: I push for 2.5-3 hours during the day and 4-5 hr at night. If you make a gradual change this can happen and you will both do well.After the kid reaches 10 lb, she may sleep 5-7 hrs.This is often aided if she is fed as she wakens rather than as she tires and is ready for sleep. Removing feeds from the sleep ritual alows them to learn to self settle. ...Read more
