Are there guidelines as to how much a newborn baby should be eating?
I have seen a few different charts according to the baby’s weight and age but are those really accurate? My baby boy is about 2 weeks old and he currently weighs 7 lb 4 oz. He drinks 3 oz of formula every 2 hours. It seems like he’s still hungry after the bottle is gone. And he’s starting to get fussy even less than 2 hours after finishing it. Should I increase the formula to 4 oz? I feel like that’s an awful lot for a 2 week old baby to have! But if he’s hungry, he’s hungry! Before I call the dr tomorrow and get his advice, I was interested to see what other parents had to say.
