I'm formula feeding.

She eats a lot! About 3 oz. (sometimes she'll finish 4 whole ounces) every 3- 3 1/2 hours. She's gaining weight well and growing!

We formula feed! He is taking between 5 and 6ozs every 4-5 hours. He is doing wonderfully and groing fantastically! The only problem is that AF returned Monday night that's no fun! Anyone else?

Well I've officially started exclusively formula feeding. My supply was crap due to forgetting/not having time to pump and quite frankly it became a hassle. Trying not to feel like a total failure since DD2 is only a month old.

Laila is now taking 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours. Sometimes she'll want a little more in between feedings. I so hate dealing with bottles. The cleaning and mixing formula. Ugh.

We are now completely formula feeding. I got a breast infection and it was unbearable to pump or nurse and of course he is going through a growth spurt so he would empty the "healthy" boob and still be hungry. This made my one boob dry up and my other one is close behind, I was only able to pump 1oz from both breasts when I tried.

He drinks anywhere from 4oz to 6oz every 2-4 hrs... Ya. Hes a machine!! Lol

They say formula makes babies fuller longer. Pffft not from my experience. Laila cluster feeds formula lol. The max amount of time she goes between feedings is 3 hours and that's not even daily. She's usually ravenous by 2 hrs after a feeding.
