How much at 2 weeks?


My LB is 12 days old and was 7lb15 today, I've written down his feeds today and he has fed 7 times with a total of 19.5ozs, he had 1 large vomit at 3pm. Does this sound about right?

Id like to know this too. Baby is 11 days old and I feed him 2 ozs at every feed (2-3hrrs) during day. About 2-3 bottles of 2 ozs overnight. He seems fine with this amount and doesnt spit up so I just stick with that until he acts if he is still hungry

That sounds similar to what we're doing. I make the bottles to 100ml (about 3 oz) and she tends to leave a bit in the bottom, but sometimes has the whole lot. She feeds about every 2-3 hours and mostly sleeps in between but I let her tell me when she's hungry rather than waking her or sticking to any set times. At her last weigh in on fri she was 5lb 11 which is 1 oz above birth weight.

Sounds good and normal. At such an early age, you shouldn't put a schedule on your LO, feed when he's hungry.

My LO is similar. He generally takes 2-3 oz every 2-3 hours. When he takes only 2 oz, he usually starts crying for the third oz pretty soon, so we'll give him that if he demands it.

My LO has anything between 2oz-4oz every 2-3 hours. Sometimes he even has 5oz-6oz and then goes for maybe 4 hours before being hungry again. I was quite worried when he had two 3oz bottles straight after eachother a couple of nights ago ! I told my midwife about it yesterday and she said it was fine and not to worry about overfeeding him as he'll just sick up what he didn't need. x

I was worried about overfeeding too. In fact, the day I left the hospital the head nurse came and talked to me and told me I was giving my baby too much milk, she had drank almost 4oz and she was 3 days old. I couldn't believe it, the poor thing was still hungry so I gave her more.

All babies are different and I've noticed sometimes they just drink more milk. Observe your baby and follow your instinct; if he's not sick and is gaining weight, give him as much as he wants. However, don't put a schedule on the LO until he's older.
