Wakes up every 2 hours for feeding during night.
Created by Updated on Jan 13, 2016
My daughter is 1 year old, she is still on mother feeding. She will have rice at around 7pm, and half roti at around 8-30pm. She will have milk before sleeping and from that time she wakes up for every 2 hours for milk and doesn't sleep she she has milk for 1/2 hour. How can i know that my milk are sufficient for her and why she gets up so frequently. Regards Sruthi

Hi Sruthi.. my paediatrician had told me that a baby can sleep widout getting hungry for almst 7-9hrs after the age of 7 months or so, when I had asked her about my daughter waking up evry 3-4 hrs at night. I feel your daughter has gotten used to your feeding at night,she may not be hungry but wants to feel the warmth/comfort of breastfeeding.. Have you tried just comforting her in other ways rather than feeding when she wakes up at night? I know it is easier said than done as I had gone through a similar situation.. Also please do take adv of your doc on this, he/she might be able to give a solution! Tc
