How often should a new born baby be fed. My wife tends to feed our 2 month old daughter overtime she cries. Which I think is not correct. Pls explain regarding this. Thank you all.

The usual recommendation is to give 2 hourly feed and we ax also recommend demand feed. That is, if the baby does not feed after 2 hours, leave him and feed when he feels hungry instead of sticking a 2 hour time table.
