ACCORDING TO WHAT TO EXPECT…
By about 4 months old, most babies sleep 10 to 12 hours at night, waking up for a feeding or two, and nap for three to five hours a day, spaced between two or three naps.
Breastfed babies should get 24 to 36 ounces of breast milk a day spread out over about five or six feeds. Formula-fed babies should have 24 to 36 ounces of formula in about five feeds of 6 to 8 ounces per session. Some babies start solids at this age, though doctors recommend waiting until baby turns 6 months old. But if you are offering solid foods now, your baby doesn’t need more than 1 tablespoon of food twice a day.
Did you know?
By 4 months old, your little one can notice differences in shades of color (especially red and green) and may even begin favoring specific ones. He can also track faster movements with his eyes, perceive depth and even grab at moving objects.
