This will help with digestion and having your baby on a schedule is better for you and your child. . ...Read more

How long can a newborn feed up to?

How long can a newborn feed up to?

You decide: Newborns get the majority of their feeding in the first 5-10 minutes of the feeding, and the rest of the time after that is just sucking/suckling time for pleasure and comfort. If you have time and nipples are not too sore, it's fie to let them do this a couple of times a day.

Is it normal for my newborn to be feeding all the time?

Is it normal for my newborn to be feeding all the time?

Yes: Newborns are wired to suckle 24/7 as a reflex. Try not to confuse the reflex with hunger. Hunger is a learned feeling, a desire to feel better if an emty stomach sends the message. If baby has just eaten, the stomach is not sending that message, but baby may accept a feed for comfort if offered. Breast fed stomachs can empty every 2 hours, formula taked longer. Newborns grow fast and eat often. ...Read more

Please give advice on how often to feed a newborn baby?

Create a pattern: I find babies feed the best after a good nap, you can then change & play with them for a time before they tire, then rest them for two hours & do it again.Do this all day to get in ~ 7 feeds, then put them down at 11 or so & let them get you up once in the night. Feed/change &settle them again, & start the day over.This works out to about every 3h in day & 4-6 at night. ...Read more
