Many times, new parents worry about feeding baby “too often” when following a routine or schedule. Page 115 in On Becoming Babywise (affiliate link) talks about different reasons you might feed more often than 2.5 hours. One of the reasons listed is just that baby is more hungry in the evening for whatever reason.
I know there are many of you who worry about feeding a baby every two hours in the evening–don’t worry. I am here to rest your minds at ease and make sure you know it is okay. Not all babies will need this, but a lot do.
Both Brayden and Kaitlyn naturally needed this every two hours in the evening at some point.
McKenna never needed it, but I did institute it when I tried cluster feeding (which is feeding every two hours in evening).
So all three of my kids had feedings at every two hours at some point in the early months.
If your baby needs this, too, don’t be afraid to do so. It is perfectly normal.
