Q:

My kid needs to be breastfed for 3 hours at night .She is doing this at times. How can I change this?



Introduce FM milk at night before going to bed

I have started feeding my son FM in night ...

I wouldn't suggest FM only for this reason as BM is the best for baby till they are 6 month old.I would suggest you to hang in there.Things will improve! May be sometimes your kid is not hungry but wants you to nurse for comfort!

Your baby is just 1 month old she needs constant breast feeding it happen the same for me but gradually this will change. If milk is coming nicely never try to introduce FM

I know it’s difficult for you to feed every 3 hrs at night.. every new mother go through dis.. max TIL 3 months or 2..but baby’s weight increases if you feed every 2-3 hrs.. don’t introduce formula if you have sufficient B.milk ..

Hey Sahana... this is normal and small babies do that... baby is too small to change such habit... if you can then you should exclusively breastfeed your baby till 6 months.. that good for both u and baby...

Hello dear.. Even my baby did this till he; turned 3.5months.. In my case he was asking every 1.5 hrs .. My Dr also told me it it completely normal... Babies do this for comfort.. Will suggest you not to go for FM provided ur BM is sufficient to increase baby's Weight;; ..
