    hi ladies!
    i was wondering at what age or week did your babies stop their 3 hour feeds? my little one is on the clock 3 hourly... if she wakes at 6 she will feed and then sleep till 9 then wake and feed and if she doesnt go back to sleep for an hour or 2....she will still feed again in 3 hours at 12 etc....should i just keep this up? :shrug:
    :flower:

    She's still very young. As she gets older, her stomach will grow and she will have bigger feeds with a longer gap in between. Stick at it hun - you're doing a fabulous job :hugs:

    bella had 3 hour milk feeds until she was 10 months old when she started dropping feeds (though at this point she was sleeping through!).

    Thanks girls! She sleeps really well and is drinking around 80-100mls each feed and is putting on heaps of weight so I guess the 3 hour feeds are what she needs :)

    Three hourly feeds is good :thumbup: My Granddaughter is a week older than your LO and is FF on demand - often every hour and a half or 2 hours ish. It's simply how she prefers to feed bless her.

    Her brother was the same and to be honest I can't remember when he started going for longer periods as Tattie and the rest of us stopped noticing - feeding on demand is such a habit for us that we didn't/don't clock watch :blush:
