Our daughter just came home from the NICU yesterday. She’s now eating every 1-3 hours. She’s 3 weeks old today, and yesterday she turned 35 weeks. We’re going to ask the pediatrician but is it possible to get her longer stretches, or just have it like this?

That's totally normal! My nicu baby was born at 31 weeks and 4 days at 2 pounds 10 ounces. They had her on a schedule feeding e very 3 hours and when I brought her home she started to eat more often now shes 7 months old and eating every 3 to 4 hours and doing great! Just give her time she will do what is best for her little body.

Unfortunately that is the norm for how small she is, I remember my first was the same, in the nicu too and that first month or so was EXTREMELY sleep deprived. Just keep up the good work, I always tell myself “it won’t last forever and one day I might miss this feeling” so I try to find joy in that. Best of luck to you and your little bundle of joy!❤️

Mine is 4.5 months old and still eats every 1.5 hours throughout the day. Every baby is different.
