    Hey Ladies my baby is 7 weeks old and he wonts to feed on 6 ounces but sometimes he will only take the 5..but some times he wonts a baby every 2-3hours its rare to go 4 hours he goes 6 sometimes in the night :happydance:
    My health visitor told me to try hungry baby but it did not make any diff so i tool him off it.

    how is your baby doing at feeding?

    At 7 weeks my LO took 4 ounces max but she's always been a poor feeder ;) as long as weight gain is fine I'd not worry.

    I wouldn't worry as long as weight gain is good. Emily eats 7 oz every 3 hours and she is fine.
