    Hi Jackie & JB,

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. I love hearing that you are enjoying the course and the live demonstrations. Hopefully, my older kids weren’t too loud in some of the videos 😂

    Regarding your question about catnapping and feedings. At this point, if your little one is following the wake, feed, play, and sleep pattern (which it sounds like she is), I would recommend offering her a feed when she wakes up from her nap. You will find that as she naturally starts to have longer wake periods between naps, the timing between the feeds will increase.

    So I wouldn’t be concerned about feeding closer together at this point, as I expect that by the time she is 4 months of age, her wake window will be around 2 – 2.5 hours, which means you might be back to feeding her every 3 – 4 hours.

    I hope that helps!

    Emma
