Every child has their own individual sleeping and eating pattern and demands. Newborn babies in particular have no concept of day or night for the first few weeks. The baby is simply not used to not getting food for long periods of time. In the womb, the baby was “fed” round the clock. Therefore, be prepared for many “duty calls” at night in the first few weeks.
If you feed your baby infant formula, you can take turns with your partner to feed the baby. Of course, you can reap the same benefit if you pump breast milk in the evening and keep it in the fridge (well sealed at +4°C to +6°C for a maximum of 2 days).
At the age of 3 months, your baby will be able to handle longer periods of time between meals and will therefore sleep longer in the night instead of during the day. From the second half of his/her first year, children no longer need food at night because at this age, the hunger and fullness rhythm of a healthy child will entirely shift to daytime.
