Way back on the fourth when my daughter was born, she was good for around 3 hour feeding cycles. As in, if she ate at 9pm, she was good until Midnight, then 3am, etc. But, over time that cycle has been tightening up. In fact, it’s been tightening even as she’s increased how much she can eat.
My take on this is that her metabolism is increasing faster than her stomach’s capacity. Here’s my approximation of those two variables based on how much we can get her to eat:
That widening gap is leading to shorter feeding cycles. Here’s a look at how this has been sneaking up on us:
If this trend continues we’re pretty much screwed.
