The parent of a newborn infant reports that the baby wakes up every 2 hours and only takes about 2 ounces of formula before going back to sleep. What instruction should the nurse give this parent?
1. Make the baby wait at least 3 hours between feedings.
2. Continue to feed the baby with this on-demand schedule.
3. When the baby gets sleepy during feeding, use techniques such as moving around and tickling to encourage wakefulness.
4. Offer the baby less formula to prevent waste.
