dear Akshata, for 2 month old breastfed baby its hard to set feeding time as he is too young . can u give me baby weight . also the evening sleep is from wat time . one great way to make sure baby doesnt feel hungry at night is to fed the baby well throughout the day . try to increase more breast time during the day and make sure the naps are in order. this is very normal dont worry . babies want to increase their milk intake thats y they wake up , wat u can.do is met the demand by feeding more during day time .

if the pee count is more than 7 times a day.. n baby is gaining the weight then no issues.. babies sleep patterns changes.. so dont worry.. baby should sleep 14 to 16 hrs a day..if your baby reaching this then no problem..
babies started sleeping for more strech n in the night in the mid of their 3 month.

finger sucking is common in babies

hi ruquaiya..my baby urinates for almost 20 times a day..his weight must be around 6kg..n his evening sleeping tym is aftr 8pm.m feeding him during day whenever he demands

dear Akshata , two things that are really good here are . the baby is of a good weight and the sleep time of 8 is perfect . try to not change this time as baby love to sleep early in evening. Now I also want u to give baby the early morning fed at 7 .for the night ur baby can wake up 3 times for fed . 11.30 , 2.30 and 5.30 . try to stick to feeding at these times . soothe the baby if he wakes up every hr by other methods other than feeding. slightly rock him, pat him to sleep this is the best method , or sush him calmly .as the weight is good the baby can fed more at day and at this weight he can also sleep 8 hours continously . soo keep trying ur very close to long night sleep .

ty ruquaiya but he keeps on sucking finger at night also n demands for feed if i feed him he takes it..n then goes to sleep..y is he sucking finger all the tym..during day n night also

ruqaiya khan

dear Akshata , sucking.finger is also a soothing method baby uses to fall.asleep . when u breastfed baby falls.asleep becoz he is sucking thats natural they use sucking to help sleep . if ur baby is sucking.fingers in sleep dont fed its not for.hunger and if he is awake.u have.fed him well.n still taking fingers it cud be jus to sothe himslef and fall.asleep . try not.to fed whenever he cries at night coz they start using breast as pacifier .
