Q:

Hi Moms
I am both on bf and formula.yesterday my baby slept continuously for 7 hours without taking feed. I woke him up for feeding.if I,m going for demand feeding,he is sleeping like this continuously for 4 to 5 hrs.and that too he will drink only for 5 mins.is it fine?? is there any problem with his digestion that he's is not feeling hungry for a very long time.what shd I do in this case??

It's ok if they sleep for longer spans . his sleeping pattern is changing . does he cry all the time . if not then don't worry.  of ur baby is crying mabbe then he is not feeding properly but if not ur good .

Its all fine. Let baby sleep and do not wake baby up. Let baby take sleep and demand. The feeding pattern does change so just go with it

For a 2 months old baby you should feed evey 2-3 hours.. feeding on demand is fine.. but for such a small baby you should feed him by gently waking up.. baby will feed and go back to sleep..

Gayatri Rao

I agree with sonam patel. For such a small baby you may have to wake him up every 2-3 hours and feed.
