Q:

healthy time gap between two feeds at night for a three month old baby?



Dr. Mugdha Joshi

No schedule feeding. After 3 months baby starts sleeping for longer hours at night which is normal. Now that your baby is 3 months just feed on demand. At night if he wants to feed he will wake up crying or get cranky then  breastfeed him. You can choose breastfeeding in side lying or laid back position at night.

My baby is both on formula milk and breast milk...he doesn't demand milk throughout night but i voluntarily feed him after 6-7 hours gap...is that okay?

Dr. Mugdha Joshi

Whether he is formula fed or breastfed, feed him on demand.

At 3 months a baby is quite sorted for his hunger needs... U can breastfeed on demand and look for hunger cues during d day... At nights it's alright if the baby sleeps a little longer.. He would definitely wake up and bother ur sleep when he is hungry... So don't worry about waking him up every 2 hours or so...

does that mean he can go without feed just like an adult for 8-10 hours

8-9 hours is a long gap I would say... Approx 4 to 4 n a half hour is ideal to offer feed to the baby... However if the baby isn't waking up after 4 hours,  don't push it too hard... U r blessed that means n enjoy ur sleep... I know of some babies who sleep without interruption
