    my lo used to go 2 and a half to 3 hours between feeds, and she'd take 4 oz. over the last 24 hours shes gone 4 hours, and at some feeds would have probably gone longer, is this normal? thanks

    It's quite normal for ff babies to go 4hrs between feeds love. Fran has gone 3-4hrs between feeds since birth.

    There are growth spurts that can make babies change their feeding habits - sometimes they feed more often and take a larger amount, sometimes they feed less often and sleep more.

    If she seems fine in herself then I wouldn't worry love but speak to your HV if you want some reassurance xx

    You aren't thick just not as confident, which isn't anything to be ashamed of xx

    Love your avatar Betty :) is it new or am I just totally unobservant? :shrug:

    OP your lo has probably just finished the 6 week growth spurt, don't worry though there's another at 8 weeks, then 12 weeks, then 4 months etc etc...these are just the ones I've encountered. Even without growth spurts O still varies from time to time how long he wants to go between feeds, so I wouldn't worry too much. Only if she's not gaining weight or not drinking much day after day, then maybe have a chat with your hv. :)
