    She's 6 days old, right? That sounds about right. Did she lose weight from her birth weight to the discharge weight in the hospital? My LO was 6lb13oz at birth, and 6lb 10oz when she was discharged from the hospital two days later, but then at her one week appointment had gained to 6lb 15 oz :)

    i thought she wasnt getting enough from me and started getting upset thinking id have to FF but when midwife told me that i wasdead chuffed...she has chubby little cheeks now its lush she might acctualy fit her clothes soon :)

    i finally found out appox how much she is getting per feed now...by pumping some of them ad giving her them in a bottle and its 3oz does that sound right?...she feeds at 10am 2pm 6pm 10pm 2am and 6am. so 18oz approx in 24 hr?

    That sounds ok to me! I cant quite remember how much they're supposed to get at that age but I think Noah used to have 4oz about every 3 hours? xx

    She will have more if she is hungry :) My sister was having 2oz ever 3/4 hours for atleast 2 months!!

    When i changed archies milk he went from 7oz right down to 3oz for about 1/2 weeks the begining of this month. So i wouldnt worry about how much she is taking :) xxx
