Can I wait 4 hours to feed newborn?
Newborns are growing fast, which is why they seem like little eating machines. His body can't take much of a break, and neither can you. That's why the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends waking your baby to feed if he sleeps more than four hours at a time for the first two weeks.
How long is too long between feeds for a newborn?
Some might feed every 90 minutes, whereas others might go 2–3 hours between feedings. Newborns should not go more than about 4 hours without feeding, even overnight.
