How Often Should I Feed My Baby?

Babies have small stomachs so they need frequent feedings.  They should eat 8-12 times a day which equals about every 1-3 hours.  However, it is important that you feed your baby on demand and NOT watch the clock.  You would eat if you were hungry and babies like to snack just like adults.  The average adult puts something in their mouth (food or drink) every 90 minutes.
