how big is LO belly?

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

how big is LO belly?

Postby babyhelstrup » Sat Feb 06, 2010 5:43 pm

i am almost exclusively BFing. but give a bottle of form when she gets really fussy (2oz). i also started pumping to start a supply and so dh can feed. she seems to always be hungry, feel like i am feeding her every 1.5hrs. i can pump a little over 1 oz at a time.

so how much should i feed her, weather formula or EBM?

When my babes were that young, they were eating 3oz of formula and BM (i'm supplimenting) and they were eating all the time as well every 1.5 - 3 hours. At 3 weeks, they went up to 4oz and now at 8 weeks they are up to 4.5-5oz depending on the time of day.

i think it just depends on the baby. My son is 12 weeks old and still is only drinking 2-3 ounces and feeds ALL the time; every 1-3 hours. I pray everyday that he will start eating a normal amount so I can go a day without feeling like all I do is make bottles:)

like PP said depends on the kiddo. Aryn does anywhere between 4 to 6 ozs every two hours and she's just shy of 2 months old.

I haven't gotten a bottle into Archer in awhile now, but I think he takes about 3-4oz. He only takes a couple of bottles a week, but nurses at least every 3 hours, except for at night when he sleeps 8 hours.
