My Baby is 7weeks old (11.7pounds)and she stills continues with her 4week old eating pattern- eating 3oz every 1.5-2hours during the day. She sleeps through the night and is up for 2 feeds(1am & 5am)
But during the day iam unable to increase her feed to every 3 to 4 hours (5-7 oz)
this is a typical feeding pattern
3.00pm-3.5oz long sleep
1.30am- 4oz long sleep
PLEASE help me here. Is it ok to continue such tiny feeds?She seems to be snacking how do i break this habit. How do I get her to increase her intake and increase the gap in her feeding now that she's going to be 8 weeks old.
Is she crying for her nighttime feeds or are you dreamfeeding? If you are dreamfeeding I would try to drop the last one that way when she wakes up in the morning she'll eat more. Other than that i dont really know...Haley is 12 weeks and she eats 6 oz @ 7am, 10am, 2pm, 5:30pm, 9:30pm and then 5 oz @ 1am but thats a dreamfeed.
