    Default Should I put my baby on a feeding schedule?

    My bub is 3 months old and his day feeds are anywhere from every 3-5 sometimes 6 hours. He's recently dropped to 5 feeds. He has 2 feeds through the night. My question is should I put bub on a feeding schedule instead of on demand? Sometimes i swear through the day hes giving no signals of being hungry.. and sometimes when I feed him, he refuses the bottle. Only through the day though..

    I probably wouldn't put him on a strict schedule but I wouldn't let him go longer than 4 hours during the day for a feed

    I'd try to get him out of the night time feeds if you can and feeding more in the day. Seems like he is topping up mostly at night. Try offering him more in the day so the feeds aren't so far apart. How many bottles is he having a day? My bub was slow at drinking his bottles, it would always take him about an hour of stop starting to finish it. But by him finishing it and getting his quota in the day he didn't wake up at night ( only occasionally when he is going through a growth spurt or something)
