My little lady is 11 weeks now and for the past few weeks has been having 5 6oz bottles of sma white, but the last few days she has missed a bottle. So for the first time I have made 4 7oz bottles up so I am gonna see how she goes. The reason 4 is we cannot cram anymore in. Here is our schedule, 08:00, Macy wakes, 12:00, 16:00 and the 7:30-8:00pm bedtime. I dont see how I can fit another one in as she is such a good sleeper. I cant see her waiting to be weaned until 6 months at this rate!!
My son is nearly 10 weeks old and takes 9ozs every bottle, and sometimes looks for more lol. He usually takes around 5 bottles per day..depending on how many naps/sleeps he has. Have you spoken to your hv/doc as it may be reflux. But they will prob say he is fine if he is gaining weight.
My baby is just over 10 weeks old, and we JUST (like, yesterday) moved her up to 5 oz at a time, rather than 4. Sometimes she doesn't finish it though, and occasionally she'll drain it and want more. She's all over the place! She weighs just under 12 pounds, and is gaining properly. She also has reflux, so spits up a lot during and after feeds. The doctor won't treat her for it because they only treat if it's "severe" and she's not classed as "severe". It's a challenge, for sure.
There is no set amount a baby should eat based on their age, size, etc. Every baby is different. The baby dictates how much they will eat in a day, not their weight, if you know what I mean.
She gets 50/50 EBM/FF. I make up 4 oz bottles during the day and 5 oz in the night. She allways leaves approx an ounce/half ounce during the day. She feeds approx every 1.5 to 2 hr during the day and gets through approx 30 to 35oz a day. She is 8 and 1/2 weeks and weighs 11lb. GP said she was fine.
Noah is 9 weeks tomorrow and drinks 7oz's 3 times a day and a 9oz bottle before bed
08.00 wake up and feed, then 12.00pm and 4.00pm then 7.30pm bath and 9oz bottle then bed ( i give him 4 ounces of his bottle before bath otherwise he gets to hungry and screams when getting ready after bath)
He has been weighed today and is 12lb 11oz putting on approx 1lb a fortnight up to now
