    Im a bit concerned about how much milk Fred is getting this last couple weeks!

    I B-Feed him first thing in morning (sometimes this is 2 feeds) and his 5pm feed, and for late morning, lunch and bedtime he has a bottle of formula.

    i started doing this as he seemed to go off feeding from me a couple of weeks ago, he takes a bottle well do decided to do a bit of both.

    only thing is now im getting obsessed by how much he takes in a bottle! sometimes he will drain 7oz, other times he has 3oz and is done, is this ok?!

    he is a good size ( over 15 1/2 pounds ) so hes not wasting away! i just keep thinking as he is getting bigger surely he will want more milk?

    thanks ladies xx

    i wouldnt worry too much as long as hes gaing weight he may taking more from you on some days less on others

    as long as his weight gain continues and his nappies are frequently wet hes getting enough
