Is it normal for my baby to eat more at night than during the day?

Yes: Some babies, particularly those who were more active in the womb at night may have their circadian rhythm reversed and will be more active and hungry at night. As the baby becomes more interactive with the environment this usually changes.

Is it better to feed my baby more at night or in the morning?

Is it better to feed my baby more at night or in the morning?

Feed on demand: Early on it is best to feed on demand...Meaning feed the baby as often as the baby wants. Start very early however in establishing a bedtime routine. Bath, breast, bed. Bathe the baby, breastfeed and then immediately put the baby to bed. Lights out, people out of room, etc. It may take a while for your baby to get the message but if you stick with it the baby learns to fall asleep on its own. ...Read more

Newborn sleep: Like adults, each baby has their own unique sleeping pattern. As long as he sleeps well at night, waking to eat and is happy and content while he is awake during the day, I believe it is fine. Enjoy him, they grow so fast. Thanks for consulting with Healthtap! ...Read more
