  • Gailll, some of my kids were FF and some were BF. I fed on demand the entire time. My kids were never on a schedule with formula so yes you can fed a FF baby on demand and they won't gain weight. None of my kids are overweight nor have ever had weight issues.
    OP: if your child is hungry feed them. Like Melissa15 said, if a baby is hungry they will not go to sleep.

  • feed on demand, your little one will let you know if they are hungry. if the lo goes back to sleep then baby isn't hungry. by this time your baby knows when it's time to feed.

  • feed them still. somewhere around 7 months is when I started noticing a pattern that the babies are waking and not really hungry but need soothed back to sleep.

  • my son slept all night when he was 3 months, of course if he happened to wake up and was acting hungry, i would feed him

  • If they fell back asleep with a little patting, then no, but typically at that age I would automatically nurse. At 3 months they were right next to me in bed, anyways, so nursing was pretty much a given.

  • You feed breastfed babies on demand. You can't feed formula babies on demand. You have to feed on schedule and can't feed too much. You have to make sure your baby doesn't gain too much. We know overweight babies can have lifelong problems with weight and health.

  • Well, my daughters almost four months and sometimes she'll wake up and fall back asleep, so I put her down, but if she's hungry within minutes she'll wake up again - babies wont sleep hungry.
