When your baby reaches

three months of age, aim for day­time feeds

ev­ery three hours, with pro­gres­sively

longer in­ter­vals be­tween feeds at night.

“If your baby is used to get­ting more than

this, he will ask for more at first. It

should only take two or three days for him

to ad­just to the new pat­tern,” says

Ali­son. En­sure your baby is thor­oughly

winded af­ter each feed. “To do

this, sit down with him sit­ting on your

lap, fac­ing you,” says Ali­son. “Hold him

with your hands sup­port­ing his back, neck

and head, with your thumbs un­der his

arms, so that his back is straight. “Keep­ing his back straight,

move him gen­tly in a cir­cu­lar move­ment

on your lap. This stretches out his ab­domen,

cre­at­ing a straight air­way from

his stom­ach to his mouth, so the wind can

es­cape.”
