  • my first daughter ate once every 4 hours because all she wanted to do was sleep that went on until she was 6months old then started eating more. my second daughter eats i swear to god every hour. and hardly sleeps. is your baby peeing and pooping alot, or not really. some babies just dont eat alot but they still give good pee and poop diapers. if you want to make sure about it takl to your doc. but your baby just could be one of the ones that just don't eat alot and thats ok too. every child is different on eating and evreything. Good Luck

  • My son ate once every 1.5 to 2 hours at that age. He was the typical breastfed baby.

  • Every baby is different in how they will eat, sleep and grow, so if you are worried about your child's eating or lack there of, you should speak to your child's doctor.

  • Now I'm worried that my ten week old isn't eating enough!
    He generally eats every 4 to 6 hours, four ounces at each feeding, sometimes more.
