thanks! my baby hasnt been well and is normally breastfed but unsure how much she was gettin as she was dehydrated an been in hospital. wen discharged they sed was an infection (didnt know where) but shes only having around 11ozs a day an not gaining weight, shes actually lost weight so dont know what to do! dont wana seem a pain at the doctors! x
if your worried hun i would definately take her back to the drs. my LO has 4-5 7oz bottles a day... she is very greedy tho and love her milk xx
haha thats a hungry baby, id rather my baby was like that though i cant imagine even making a 7oz bottle!
She does seem to be getting better so gona wait til monday when she gets weighed again and if she lost again then seek advice as she seems a bit more hungry now x
I was wondering the same, my LO is 10 weeks old next week and he has 6 4oz bottles a day and someone told me he's not eating enough and to try him on 5oz bottles ..he doesn't seem hungrier otherwise he'd surely cry for more milk? ..anyways, I tried him on 5oz bottles and he kept leaving 1oz so he didn't need 5oz, but for the last 3 days he's been having 1 5oz bottle a day, so maybe he's kinda weaning himself onto 5oz bottles?
My cousin said her LO at 10 weeks was on 5 7oz bottles a day!?
