Still eating every 2 hours! — The Bump
Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Still eating every 2 hours!

DS will be 10 weeks tomorrow and he still eats every 2 hours-- He is breastfed (I pump during the day, he nurses at night) and I am so frustrated.  He will only take like 2 ounces or so but he eats every 2 hours throughout the day and wants to nurse every 2-3 hours at night.  We got a 6 hour stretch once.  ONCE!   Ugh... this Mama needs some shut eye.

Re: Still eating every 2 hours!

  • I hear you!  My DS will be 10 weeks on Saturday and I have the same thing going on here!  A couple times he went almost 4 hours but that's it.  I keep thinking it has to do with being born early and at a low birthweight but I don't know.  My pediatrician said to try and hold him off to stretch it out.  We tried this for 2 days and it was horrible.  I went back to feeding on demand and just going with it.  All babies are different right?!  But if someone has advice on this please let us know!!

  • DS1 ate every 2-2.5 hours until he was about 4months old! It's rough, but it does get better, I promise!! It'll turn around. Does your LO take a paci? With DS2, my DH gives him a paci when he first starts waking up and that can usually stretch him another hour or so.

  • My DD#1 was BF and she ate every two hours until she was probably 4-ish months.
  • Same here - LO is eating every 2 hours. I always said I wanted to keep the pacifier out of the equation as much as possible but this past week I gave it to her and that's the only way to hold her off a little - maybe an hour or so. She's only 7 weeks so I don't mind feeding her every 2-3 hours but we need to start a routine for daycare which is coming up in just a couple weeks.
  • my Lo is 9 weeks.....talked to her pedi today about how mine wakes every 3 hrs at night...she said it is TOTALLY normal and that very few babies STTN at this age...

    So....i guess we all will be walking zombies for a little longer ;)

    DS ate every 3 hours at night until he was a year old, he was BF'd.  At that time we just gave him sippy cups of water.  Even now he's still up at night more than she is.
    Sorry no paragraphs, bumping from my phone.
    I once had a picture until the trolls showed up.

  • Mine eats like... every hour. Except at night, it's 4-5 hours, or every 2 and a half.
