From birth 4 hourly feeds would be ideal.
I would try to follow a feed/play sleep routine so you get to know if it’s hunger or comfort she is seeking. Just remember that baby's change their routine all the time.

At this age you would expect to giving one over night feed and you could try using settling techniques for other wakings.

If you feed her to sleep this will be your biggest problem and a f/p/s routine will fix this.

You can get an overview of our settling program from the <a href=" Baby’s Sleep</a> section of the Huggies site or for more detail, and a visual demonstration, from <a href="It&#39;s time to sleep&lt;/a" />It's Time To Sleep</a> DVD&BOOK.
