My DS is 5 weeks old today. He is ebf and generally feeds every 2-3 hours for 15 minutes. How often does your bub feed? His night feeds now are still this frequent however he only feeds for 10 minutes at a time. Because he cluster feeds in his witching hour (4pm-7pm) I assume that this is just because he is 'topping up'. I hear a lot of mummies say that their bubs feed 4-5 hourly overnight at this age? I know every baby is different, just curious to hear your experiences at this age. Thanks in advance

Dd is 7 weeks. She feeds roughly 2 hourly during the day except at her witching hour when she cluster feeds like crazy! Up until a week ago she fed 2 - 3 hourly at night too. We've just started getting one 4 - 5 hour stretch overnight now.

2 hrly until 6 myths or so. Cluster feeding between 2 am and 6 am.
Of my 6 most feed 2 to 3 hourly until 8 weeks or so. I am big believer in feeding when bub is hungry. Just go with the flow.

Totally normal, we had 4-5 hour stints of sleep from 3 to 4 months, then the regression hit and we've been hit and miss since then.

DD fed 4 hourly as a newborn. DS fed 2-3 hourly during the day but did longer stretches overnight at that age. But he regressed at some stage and woke for much more frequent night feeds (maybe 3 hourly or so) until I might weaned him at 14mths. OP your little one is completely normal....they are all so different!
