  • At five months my DD was eating breastmilk every 4 hours and typically would go about 6 hours at night. Every baby is different though. :)

  • My baby eats when he's hungry....he's not on a feeding schedule.

  • I feed as needed until I introduced cereal at 6 months and then that was at regular B,L, D times. I would make sure he is feed enough at night so that you get as much sleep as possible. Listen to your child and she will tell you what she wants.

  • All 5 of mine nursed roughly every 3 hours between 7am-7pm, some of them were still having a late night feeding around 9-10pm and then slept until 7 am.
