Q.

Feeding habits: when does it change

My daughter will be 4 weeks on Monday. I' m exclusively breastfeeding her and up until now she has been drinking every 2 hours, which I read is normal.
When will she start feeding every four hours?

Your baby will gradually go to less frequent feeding by sleeping for longer periods between feeds.
