    Default Do they all add up the same in total?

    My dd is 4.5mo old and she's eating 4 to 5 times a day. She sleeps through the night (12 hours) and I never wake her up for feeding. She's gaining weight, healthy and happy. Another mom told me that I should feed her more often just because 4 times a day does not sound right to her. I am wondering if I should feed her more frequent, but will the total come out the same versus less frequent? I think the baby controls how much he/she eats, correct? If the baby's hungry and not eating enough, she will let me know, right? At her 4 mo. check up, she was 26 1/2", 15lb and 10oz. What do you think?

    It sounds like you're doing fine. If you're worried, if you co-sleep, you could offer her milk in her sleep, I do that when my son's been napping for over 2 hours and he'll eat and continue sleeping another couple of hours. My son is 5.5 months now at around 3/4months he stopped waking up at night. He sleeps from 11pm to 8am but wiggles around at 6am because he wants to be fed.
