    I'm a bit worried about my LO and whether his feeding is normal. In the past week or so he has moved to feeding every 2-3 hours during the day to every 3-4 hours (now at 7am, 11am, 3pm, 5pm and 6.20pm every day like clockwork).

    He goes to bed at 7pm and he has started to sleep through until 6 / 7 in the morning without a night feed (although occasionally he will wake at 1/2am and I'll feed him). He is also feeding much quicker - usually only 15/20 mins max but sometimes as quickly as 10 mins and sometimes he will only take one side, even though he's feeding less often.

    Does this sound right for his age? I'm worried he isn't getting enough but if I offer more often, he just seems to feed for a shorter time. He is having plenty of wet and dirty nappies. It just feels like he isn't getting as much...

    I think this is totally normal & great postive progression. Keep an eye on his weight gain too but he sounds like he is doing just great.
