Wean off scheduled nighttime feedings once baby can eat enough to sleep through the night.
Once your child weighs about 11 pounds, they are able to eat enough to keep them full through five to six hours of sleep. If you’re waking them up for scheduled feedings, you may be interrupting their sleep to feed them when they’re not completely hungry. If your child is eating well throughout the day and sleeping soundly through the night, don’t stress about missed nighttime feeds (hey, that means they’re sleeping more — that’s great for them and you!).
