Does anyone else feel like they might be over feeding their baby? Logan will eat 4oz of formula and then 2 hours later want another 4oz. We track his total daily intake (really just to see when his last feeding was) and he never drinks more then 25-30 oz in a 24 hour period. I think that it might just be that hes sleeps for sooo long that when hes awake hes constantly hungry. What is the normal amount a 2 month old should be eating?
i feel like i am over feeding as well. lillian eats 4 ounces every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. sometimes will want another ounce or so. her doctor wasnt concerned at her 2 month appt, and at 50 percentile in weight. so i'm thinking its normal? besides, i couldn't deny her food. those lungs kill me.
Jacob nurses all the time and at daycare he is eating almost every 2 hours. My pedi wasn't concerned by his weight gain so I don't think it is a problem. they are growing like crazy at this stage. unless your pedi is concerned, I would feed him when he's hungry and not worry about it.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
Archer eats 4 ounces every hour and a half. His ped said feed him on demand at his very first appointment. A ped in the same office acted like it should be spread out longer weeks after that. I will bring it up Saturday at his 2 month appointment. But really I'm gonna continue to feed him when he is hungry no matter what they say. I'm not gonna deny him when he's hungry. He's had a huge appetite since he was born. The nicu was even shocked at how much he ate. I fed my others the same and they turned out a healthy weight.
Thanks PrincessMom08 for my wonderful siggy!
I was going to post something a long this topic. Cody eats between 4 oz and 5 oz a feeding. Sometimes he wants another oz after. He will be 7 weeks on Monday. He eats about every 3 hours. I also feed on demand. Our Pedi at our last appointment said we were feeding him to much. I told her he is always hungry. Although they were happy with his weight gain. I am worried we are feeding him to much. Cody is on formula
