I often see questions about feeding schedules where the mom is wondering what to do because baby sometimes isn’t hungry to eat at three hours, but other times in the day can’t go more than three hours.
Keep in mind that combination schedules are okay. No problem. If there is one feeding a day where your baby needs more time between feedings, you can do 3.5 hours for that feeding and 3 hours for the rest and still get in the correct number of feedings in a day.
You can do a combo 2.5-3 hour schedule. With both of my kids, that schedule also required one 2 hour interval in the evening (they were/are breastfed).
You can do a combo 3-3.5 schedule. I have done a combo 2.5-3.5 hour schedule. Kaitlyn is on a 4 hour schedule right now, but her last feeding comes at 3.5 hours so I can get her in bed in time. I can go on. Create your schedule to serve your baby’s needs, your family’s needs, and your needs.
So while you are creating your schedule, remember the option of a combination schedule.
