At what age do the sleeps between feeds stretch out?

hi there, my baby is 3weeks old and only sleeps between 2 and 3 hours between feeds at night time, when do they start to stretch out??

Answer: Hi,
I recommend you follow a feed/play/sleep routine and always resettle baby awake into the cot after a night feed. You would expect to feed 4 hourly so if not due for a feed try using our settling techniques to resettle.

Cheers, Maree
