How much formula does your 2-3 week old eat?


My LO has a seemingly insatiable appetite lately! She began increasing a few of her daytime feedings this past week to every hour or 1.5 hrs., 2-3 oz. at a time. At her doc appt. the other day, the doc said she should be eating more like every 3 hrs, or even 2 but not every hour. But she keeps wanting more--tonight LO ate 3 oz. then 20 min. later 2 oz. more. I try everything to delay her (paci, etc.) but that just makes her hungrier and she sucks on the bottle like she hasn't eaten in days, poor thing.

Am I maybe not offering her enough at each feeding? I just can't imagine her little tummy fitting more at a time at barely 2.5 weeks old!

Thanks, maybe I should just try offering her more then. I thought it was a growth spurt at 1st but it is lasting so looks like it's her hungry lil appetite!

yes PAgal do that, i thought 180ml was way to much to give to a 3-4wk old but my hv said just feed him what he wants as all babies are different! i sometimes think he's gonna pop whith the full amount but if i try to withhold it he goes bonkers lol!!

Thanks, I feel better about it now! I just feel like I am feeding her all day long right now, her eating pattern is all screwed up!
