Hi and thank you for contacting us,

We truly understand your concern regarding your 3-month old baby’s sleeping and feeding pattern, especially when she would end up sleeping for 7 hours without milk. We will try to help you.

For your information, as babies get older, they will tend to feed less often and sleep for a longer period at night. A baby is probably eating enough if they:

  • seems to be content, alert and active
  • growing and developing
  • steadily gaining weight
  • is wetting and defecating on a regular basis

However, refusing to feed whilst at the same time, having a problem in gaining weight for example, might be a serious sign that requires immediate attention by a paediatrician.

With that being said, you are encourage you to talk to our doctor online so that we can help you better.
