  • All 4 of mine nursed every 3 hours from 7am - 10pm, then they pretty much slept all night (so no eating). And yes, it felt like they were always asleep at that age!

  • Yeah, more sleeping then anything. She nursed every 2 hours pretty regularly.

  • At seven weeks old both of my kids ate every 2-3 hours.
    My son slept when he wasn't eating, but my daughter was awake longer between feedings.

  • My son ate every three hours, on the dot. He split the rest of his time between sleeping and crying ( he was very colicky)

  • My babies ate about every 3 hours during the day at that age, one slept through the night, one was up every 3 hours at night, and one was up once at night. All 3 of my babies have been very alert and awake a lot during the day from the time they were newborns or a few weeks old.

  • My son nursed maybe every 2 hours during the day and about 1-1.5 hours at night at that age. My twins nursed about every 1.5-2 hours during the day and every 3-4 at night at that age. Each baby is different.
