Q&A: 5 Month-old Waking At Night to Nurse

Wendy Goldenthal, Certified Breastfeeding Counselor


Q Should my 5-month-old still be waking up at night every hour to hour and a half to nurse?

A At this stage of your babies development, every hour to hour and a half is more than your baby needs. A lot of possibilities could be causing this, and through trial and error, you will need to work with your baby to change the situation. Waking up once or twice at this stage to nurse is more of the norm.
