At a parenting class I took today, we watched a video on Sleep training. In the video the man speaking said that once a baby reaches 15 pounds or so...they no longer technically need to eat during the night. But since they are used to waking up too feed, they do. My daughter used to sleep 10 hours straight, and was perfectly fine. But the past month or more she has woken up probably 3 times a night too eat. Obviously she can go a long period of time at night w/o eating.
So my question is, is she really hungry or is it just a habit? Should I try feeding her more during the day to compensate for the night time feeding, and maybe she'll sleep through the night?
Or is this totally wrong and she knows when she's hungry lol. There are wayyyyy too many opinions out there and its very hard to know whats best for her specifically.
