I am a new mom of a handsome 4 day old baby boy. He weighs a lil' over 5 lbs and is 19" long. All his test results indicate that he is ahelathy boy.
So far I have had no problems with him except his feedings.
He feeds at an interval of about 3 hrs during day time, but, during night time, beginning 11pm he tends to want to nurse every hour until 7am and has 3-4 dirty diapers during this time. At night his palette seems relatively dryer and he signals his nursing needs by crying and sucking his own fist.
The room temperature during night is around 72 degrees, the humidity is around 70-75% and is controlled by a humidifier.
Is this normal feeding schedule? Is there a way to regulate his night time feeding?
