Many parents are often faced with a challenge with all these decisions that are involved in developing their baby. In this case, you have to create a baby feeding schedule for your baby to help them get enough food and rest each and every day.

Up to 32 ounces (946 ml) of breast milk or formula in a 24-hour period.
Example 1: Mom who exclusively breastfeeds her 5-month-old baby.
8:00 a.m: I breastfeed him and he keeps sleeping.
10:00 a.m: My fat man wakes up and I breastfeed him again. We play.
1:00 p.m .: I’m breastfeeding again. Like something and let’s go for a walk.
3:00 p.m .: Sleep your nap.
5:00 p.m .: Wake up and take the breast again. I play with him or leave him playing on his belly or I play music, which he loves. Also, sometimes, he plays with grandparents and uncles.
8:00 p.m .: I breastfeed him. We play.
9:30 p.m .: He touches his bathroom, I give him a breast and, before falling asleep, I read him a story.
11:30 p.m .: He falls asleep and no longer gets up to breastfeed until 8:00 or 8:30 a.m., more or less.
Example 2: Mom at home feeding her 5-month-old baby with formula
7:00 a.m .: Wake up and play in your crib with your books (cloth, designed for babies) for a while.
8:00 a.m .: I change the diaper and clothes. After giving him his bottle with formula, to play has been said!
10:00 a.m .: Take a bottle and then take a nap. I take advantage to do my things.
12:00 p.m .: We play. I change the diaper and take another bottle.
3:00 p.m .: Take your bottle and sleep another nap. I take advantage to cook and fix the house.
5:30 p.m .: The baby and dad play. They go out to the patio. He takes another bottle and keeps playing.
9:00 p.m .: I bathe it and I give it masses. He takes his last bottle.
9:30 p.m .: He falls asleep. Sweet Dreams!
He rarely gets up at dawn. Sometimes he wakes up at 3:00 or 5:00 in the morning. When that happens I give him a bottle and go back to sleep.
