I am wondering how much my 3.5 month old should eat - as in ounces of formula? Somedays he eats like, 6 oz every 2-3 hours and then somedays... such as the last few days, he eats and therefore wastes significantly less. When he left NICU I was told he needed at least 2 oz each feed to stay hydrated... but how much should I make sure he gets each day?
SHOOT, I cant find it! BUT it sounds like he is eating just fine. My DD was 4 lbs 14 oz when she was born. She's almost 9 months and is 14 pounds! hahahaha I'll keep looking for the sheet. My DD still wont eat more than 4-5 oz at each feeding but because of reflux, she eats every 2-3 hours STILL!
