Newborns need to feed every 2-3 hours. When your baby is hungry, she might:
- make sucking noises
- turn towards the breast.
You can start look for these cues every 1-2 hours in newborns or every 3-4 hours for an older baby.
Looking for your baby's hunger signs is a better way to work out when to feed than waiting for a set number of hours.
