This is a discussion on baby always hungry? within the Newborn Baby and Infant Care (up to 12 months old) forum, part of the Growing Up & Parenting category; mummies, im not sure if my baby is still hungry. she is 3 mths now and feeds on the 4-hr ...
mummies, im not sure if my baby is still hungry. she is 3 mths now and feeds on the 4-hr schedule of:
160ml breast milk--10AM
160ml breast milk--6PM
everytime after she finish her milk, she still cry. im not sure if she is crying for the teat or what. i used to BF her for about 1 hr everytime in her first 2 mths.
after pacifying her, she does forget about it. then about an hr before her next feed, she start to cry for milk again.
but FM interval cannot shorten right?
anyone can share her experiences with me?

for me, i would just give if they want. when my son was 3 month old he needs to be fed 3hourly 120ml, sometimes 2 hourly. It dpends, i won't stop or control because i am sure they really need it, if not they won't cry for it
but she cry 3 hours after i feed formula. but formula tin says 4 hours ...
oh i dont follow the formula tin. Infact, now he is already 18mths old, but he is still drinking only 120ml, but it is 3 hourly. Doctor also will say that, what stated there is just a guide, not meant to follow exactly.
Yup i also dont follow the tin...tried but it's impossible cos dear son can't do it...different babies different demands...
dear son now only drinks 150ml every 3-4 hours...
dear husband says he's not chubby at all...
but what to do?? tried give him 180ml he can't finish...if i follow the tin now he should be drinking 210ml already...
Yea, sometimes, the tin is super kuazhang for some babies.. Every baby is different.. dont worry too much..
For myself, I stick to 3hrly since 1mth old until now for Iggy.
yap, my son also can't finished if give him more than 120ml....so i just feed on demand. sometimes an hour later he might need it again. sometimes, when he is sleepy, he will also ask for milk....basically my son loves milk a lot (my mum alwways said that he is 'NI GIEN' in hokkien)
thanks for all the reply. but my baby girl very scary one. I think this is because my let down is slow and she takes 1 hr to breastfeed. when i introduce her bottle, she swallow really fast. now better .
it seem like whatever amount I give, she will grobble down one.
So I should not stick to the tin of 4 hr interval ?
btw, how you guys instruct the care givers? just 3 hours interval?
hmmm. for me when my maid was just here that time i told her to give my son 120ml 3 hourly as usually, but if my son need (my son usually will cry for milk only) in less than 2 hours, then give him additional 100mm milk. acutally i am always mornitoring her for about a few weeks until i thnk she can....
But me dont trust totally ....still checking everytime
this could be one of his growth spurts. my 3 months old son sometimes hungry every hour after i fed him for 1.5 hours, but i still latch him on when he hungry, i feed him more frequently . Me now taking fenugreek.there were times i was so tired that i told my dear husband to prepare formula milk, guess what, he was latched on the next hour after he poo and wee. He was so hungry that tears were flowing out of his eyes

my baby's near to a month old and used to be able to last on 90ml of my expressed breast milk for 3 hours yesterday. but today she's been asking for milk every 2 hourly. i dont know is it coz of mother in law who always assume that when babies cry, it must be coz of hunger... how?
Thanks for the reassurance. just that it's gonna be difficult to keep p with her demands... argh!
isabelandrew i tink my baby even more hungry then urs bah
lets say we start at
all the timing i stated above are plus and minus 1 hour but my gal is only barely 3week old, i tried feeding her abit lesser and she will cry non stop.
is it normal?
pediatrician from Thomson Medical Center said that just feed until she dont want to eat.when they r full they will stop
My dear daughter small small... birth only 2.43kg, recently just tripled birth wt at 10months. If compare to your dear son, he's not far from my dear daughter's wt now .
wow! Im not alone, man!
ya,but i think sometimes if baby still cries after feeding it might becos of wind in the stomach.
