Feed baby on demand.. There is no rule of three hours.. Note baby's signs of hunger.. Crying is considered to be a late sign of hunger.. Judge the primary signs like smacking of lips, licking of hands or fists, searching for breasts.. Some times even without feeding babies love to be on the breast as it gives them reassurance and love ..

Renuka dont worry .. Babies do get cranky before passing urine .. It is v much normal.. They get cranky because there bladder gets full and are relieved once bladder gets empty.. And wetting means urine..

Thnku neha for such a vital information... u mentioned d word wetting is it in d sense... d urine or motion??my baby is one month old nw.... I stay in hyderabad whr d climate is too hot as of nw. I feel the summer heat makes my baby very tired coz most of d tym he is aslp... I got to wake him forcibly for breastfeed at every 3hrs intervals. Is it normal?one more thing.. whn ever he is awake n hez about to pass urine,either he cries or gets very cranky seconds before he passes urine. once d yrine is passed,he comes to his normal activites. jst puzzeld wid his reaction so asking u is it normal behaviour of babies or not?

If ur baby is wetting at least 7-8 nappies a day then baby is getting enough breastmilk.. After every feed your breasts will see lighter.. Also nurse the baby on demand
