    So my daughter is two months old and we have gotten into a pretty good routine the evenings are when she gets fussy so I try to give her feedings by then it seems like every two hours she wants me to feed her and I didn’t know if that would not make her feed as as good when 8:30 comes around since that’s her big feeding before bed. We put her down and she’s asleep by 9:30-10:00 on average we’re getting 5-6 hours a stretch of sleep until she wakes up for a feeding. How should I do the feedings once is gets closer to 8:30? Also she does like to nap in the evenings but how close can she nap until her big feeding at 8:30?

      Hi @Kristie –
      Thank you for writing to us about your 2 month old! It’s definitely common for your bay to be fussy in the evening, and for her to want to feed more often! Cluster feeding may even help her sleep better, since she’ll be eating more overall!

    Love this post! How would you again these schedules if you’re doing mostly breastfeeding but supplementing 2-3 meals with formula? Thanks!

      Hi Christie,
      Thank you for following The Baby Sleep Site – I’m so glad to hear this post was helpful for you! Since we mostly work with sleep, we are not really qualified to answer specific feeding questions, especially since your answer would depend on how much you’re producing, etc., and we want to make sure your little one is getting enough 🙂 You can check in with your pediatrician or lactation consultant, or call a breastfeeding helpline in your area for more support. KellyMom has a great page with helpline resources you can check out here: https://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/breastfeeding-helplines/
      I hope that helps! Good luck 🙂
