Breastfeeding A to Z

How Often Is Your Baby Eating? 3 Months

By 3 months of age your baby will be eating roughly 8 times per day.  Some babies have started to sleep a longer stretch in the day and will eat more often when they are awake.  Other babies will eat every 3-4 hours and may not necessarily have a longer stretch of sleep.  Both are normal.  Or your baby may have another pattern of eating.  Basically, if your baby is gaining weight, feeding your baby on demand is best.
