How does your 3 month old sleep/eat?

I have a 3 month old and I was wondering how your 3 month old eats and sleeps?

My daughter was doing really well sleeping at night and now we're back to getting up every 2 hours. She also only eats 3-4oz at a time. Just kinda wondering what was up with other 3 months out there as well!

We have started feeding her cereal per doctor's orders, but that has made no difference in anything and its only twice a day.. "breakfast" and "dinner"

  • As far as naps go I don't really go by a schedule. If she's tired, she sleeps. Some days she sleeps more than others, but overall I'd say she sleeps quite a bit. At night she will usually have one long stretch anywhere from 4-7 (although 7 is rare) hours. I would say 4 to 5 is pretty average for her long stretch. After that its about every 2 hours then that she wakes up again. I breastfeed, so as far as how much, I can't really tell you. I nurse her throughout the day every 2-3 hours, occasionally more often, but that is about average. She eats for about 10 minutes at a time.

  • My son usually goes to bed about 8 and wakes about 5. He eats anywhere from 5-8oz every 4 or so hours. Hes a big healthy happy boy!

  • My daughter is 5 months now, but at 3 months she was taking 5 oz every 3 hours or less. She didn't want to sleep at night time. When she finally did fall asleep which would be 10 or later, she slept 9 hours plus!

  • My son still nurses about every 2-3 hours during the day (which hasn't changed since birth) but has lately only been getting up once at night. Goes to bed between 8-9pm wakes up around 3-4am...nurses, I change his diaper and then he sleeps again till about 7ish. Who knows if this will stick though but he's been doing that for about 3 nights in a row. Before that he would go to bed around 8-9pm, wake up around 1am eat, change, then back to sleep till 5am, same thing again, and then sleep till about 8.
