How long does it take for a 3 week old to drink 4oz


Hi,

I hope someone can help - when i feed my 3 week old a bottle of 4oz SMA milk he takes about 40 mins to drink it - and then it takes me about 20 mins to burp him....it's killing me at nights and he gets up every 3 hours (my first baby let me sleep for 5-6 hours at nights from the start!) so im not used to every 3 hours at nights! i thought this one would be the same as the 1st one!

im using tommee tippee closer to nature bottles and im using the number 1 teat...when can i switch to number 2! And should he be taking this long for a feed?

U can try vary flow teats or give size 2 a try. We were using size 2 at 4 wks for TT bottles. When we changed to Dr. Browns bottles at 2.5 mnths we went for size 3.

It's definitely worth trying a faster teat, and also make sure the valve isn't stuck too.

I was told that if LO isn't finishing their bottle within 20-30 mins and/or is falling asleep on it regularly these are the main signs that you need to change.

Try burbing every 1/3 of the way through the feeding.

Deep air bubbles in the tummy, takes forever to get out, IF you can get them out.

If you burp more often, you'll prevent that.
