    Default Cluster feeding

    Is it normal for newborn babies to cluster feed in the evenings if they're FF?

    Yes. I don't think it's related to the feeding method, more their needs.

    I ff Ds1 and yes he used to cluster feed until he got into more of a pattern. Im also ff Ds2 he's almost 8 weeks and hasn't cluster fed so like pp I think It's to do with individual babies needs

    Hi. I am not too sure but my breast fed bub never really cluster fed just fed very frequently all the time then slowed down and slept through at around 10 weeks. (not now at 6 months but that is another story!) Would a dummy help?

    She won't take a dummy. She doesn't know how to keep it in her mouth. I might buy one that's the next size up tomorrow.. I don't think she's wanting a dummy though. If I hold the dummy in place for her, she sucks on it like there's no tomorrow & gets really edgy...

    My ff baby cluster fed. I think its just instinct at this early age. Ds wouldnt have a full bottle, by full I mean reccommended amount for age. He would drink half burp sleep for ten minutes and then want more. I just persevered eventually he'd take more and more sleep for longer and longer. His feeding patterns early on resembled a bf baby like he was trying his heart out to establish my supply!

    My dd was on bottles but with ebm. She definitely had days where she cluster fed late in the day.
    She loves dummies though. She had gumdrop ones initially. . but now the cherry shaped ones. They stay in her mouth better. You could try one? Tommee tippee do them. They are really cheap.
