I usually give Caleb a 3oz bottle of expressed milk in the middle of the night and he usually gobbles the whole thing down. So last night I thought I'd see how much he'd eat before stopping, and he ate between 4.5 and 5oz He is such a porker! He promptly went into a milk comma and slept for close to 6 hours (which was AMAZING). But being the worrier that I am, I'm now concerned that I overfed him. Is that possible, and if so, what harm can it do to baby? He didn't spit any of it up (he hardly ever spits up anyways) and he was obviously very content with no belly ache if he slept for so long (I did give him gas drops after, though, because I always do that).
