  • it's actually a pretty good schedule for a 3 month old. My daughter was 3 hours around the clock for the first month of her life. 3 weeks is also when the baby experiences a growth spurt.

    Just feed the baby and, if you can, sleep when he sleeps

  • Nothing, that is completely normal! It'll change sooner or later. Around 2 1/2 months for us! Good Luck Momma! ;)

  • Keep feeding him. This is a normal feeding schedule. Take a nap at the same time as him during the day to catch up on your sleep.

  • That's completely normal. My daughter is almost a month and a week old and that's just about her schedule.

  • Feed him whenever he wants. He'll tell you when hes hungry and when he's not. My son did the same. Like clockwork. I know others have said it but SLEEP WHEN HE DOES. forget cleaning the kitchen or doing laundry...when he sleeps you sleep.
