Okay, so I know I haven't been on here in a while, but I was wondering if any of you ladies could help me out with something.
I read everywhere that baby's should eat/drink 2.5 ounces for every pound of body weight. Asa is a little over 13 pounds now and he used to follow that 2.5 ounces thing really closely, but lately, he's been more like 2 ounces per pound... what do y'all think about it?
Well i am not sure, but that seems like a lot to me... That is just from personal expirience. Kyra weighs a little over 12 lbs. and is eating at most 5 ounces for the sitter during the day. There are sometimes where she is only eating 3 ounces at a feeding, so she is not even close to following that guideline!!
hmm idk madison weighed 12lbs 11oz a month ago and she was eating like 5 ouces at a time now she is eating about 6-7 so that 2.5 for every pound does seem a lot to me as well and even still at times she only eats a little bit like 3 then will be fine for a while and idk how much she weighs now lol
OH that's over a 24 hour period. I first thought it meant per feeding! LOL Addy is taking 5-6 oz. every 4-6 ours depending on her appitite that day, but her lazy butt is sleeping from 9pm to 7am these days. If he is 13 pounds he is growing good! Babies go through growth spurts where they will eat alot and then slow down till the next spurt! Alot of people tend to over feed babies, thats what causes spit ups and belly aches, He will let you know when he has had enough!
well my little one is about 15-16 pound now, not that little, and I don't know how mush she drinks because she is breasfed. She will start on solids next week as she will be 12 wks then, but really it;s just tastes of baby food at first, like one or two teaspoons and then you gradualy build up. But in this country they now recommend not to start solids until 6 months now, but my little one is ready to go!!
