A Schedule With Flexibility

A feeding schedule should be flexible, allowing your baby to eat when she becomes hungry. Very young babies usually need to be fed every 2 to 3 hours, but older babies may wait for 4 or 5 hours between feedings. Although crying is the only way a young baby can complain of hunger, crying may nmean other things as well. If your baby cries within 2 hours after a feeding, check for other causes such as an uncomfortable position or wet diaper before feeding her again.
