So hubby and I went to a recommended doctor to double check to be sure there was nothing more than normal baby issues and "colic" going on with my baby. Baby is 11 weeks now and he said she looks perfect but while we were there the nurse said she recommends feeding my baby no more than every 2 hours. She said giving her time to digest the milk and get hungrier before a feed might help lessen her gas/spitting up problems as every hour/hour and a half is too frequent at her age (unless its a growth spurt time or something) and only hour and a half naps are short. (she sleeps one 4-7 hour stretch at night but often still only hour or so naps in the day though she often still seems so tired all day because she gets so fussy after not long awake)
My daughter currently eats every 1.5 hours unless she takes a longer nap (not often) then maybe after 2-3 hours. If she is upset or something else she may want to latch still to sooth and/or eat. Since I often hold her she will also often root with her eyes closed and eat or use the nipple to go back to sleep for longer. She has not found/gotten her thumbs yet and hates the pacifier. Could this be something I should be thinking about at her age, making her wait at least so long before feeding again?
I have no idea if this is right and want to check around before I try it cause I hate the idea of making her wait if she seems to want it sooner.
