Are there feeding tips for babies?

ANSWER

  • Continue to feed your baby when she wants to be fed, about 7-8 times a day.
  • Your baby may be going longer between feedings and have fewer poopy diapers. That's OK.
  • Spitting up is common. Holding your baby upright in your arms, in a swing, or in a car seat for about 30 minutes after feeding may help. Make sure you continue to burp her after each feeding.
  • Don't give your baby infant cereal, juice, or other solids yet. Her digestive system isn't ready.
  • Don't give your baby water. Breast milk or formula is all your baby needs.
