How many calories do you strive for our child to eat a day?

Re: calories
 
you know this is a good question. I keep fighting that bm has more then 20 cal/oz but ped disputes this and says it's 20 so she eats 60 cal every 3 hrs plus adds and additional I think 60 calories during the day to her feeds. It's something like close to 200 I think they want her eating?

Re: calories
 
Danny doesn't have a set intake goal but he has a set goal of "in addition to food" calories. He is on Peptamen Jr. and he is supposed to have 3 per day...so far we have only gotten him to drink 1.5 on the best day. Grr... They are 250 cal per so 750 total goal of additional calories.

ETA: The ped is actually right on this one. On average BM has only point something over 20 calories per ounce. So 20.1 or 20.5 calories per ounce.
