How much to feed a 6 week old?


Hi ladies,

Title says it all really! How many oz/ml of formula does (or did) your 6 week old have at each feed?

Thanks xxx

My LO is six weeks on sunday but is already weighing over 11lb so this week we have increased her feed to 6oz. If she eats all 6 she will go about 4 hours if she eats between 4 and 5 it will only be 3 hours. She is a bit of a hungry gannet!

Earl is the same.

He is 5 weeks on Monday and has 5oz every 3 hours (except at night when he has a 5hr then 4 hr sleep pattern). He weighed 11lb 7oz last wednesday!! He averages 35oz a day!!! But he seems happy, his tummy aches have stopped and he is in a clear cut routine...it's obviously what works for him. I fully expect that next week (when he's 6 weeks) he will be up to 6 oz a feed too!

At 6 weeks, Autumn was on 4oz every 3 hrs during the daytime. At night she'd have a bottle about 9, 2 or 3 then about 6 or 7am.

She just in the last week went up to 5oz (8 weeks old now)

Aimee- lou - I'm glad it's not just mine who eats loads! I was begining to worry she was biggest / hungriest baby on here! People can't believe she is only 6 weeks!
