My son will be 6 weeks on Saturday & the last 2 days he has been extra fussy & wanting to eat constantly. He will fall asleep but as soon as I put him down he wakes up crying or he may sleep for 10-15 minutes. He'll sleep for hours if I hold him. :(
My baby girl is going on 7 weeks and im scared of over feeding to. How many ozs are you mommies feeding your babies and the time rage? Im giving her 3oz every 3 hour but at 9 o clock pm to 9 o clock am i only give her 2ozs every 3 hours at night.
Wow now I sound like my baby is a little porker! She's 5 weeks old and eats for sure 4 n a half oz and sometimes 5 n a half oz. But she's great bout going to sleep for me at night except last night. She fought it for 3hrs and ate almost 7oz! And still only slept for 3hrs compared to her recent 5-6hrs straight. She wasn't fussy just...... acting like she wasn't tired. She would fall asleep on me then I put her down and she'd wake.up.
When she was only a week old my sister told me to put her on a schedule with a book and write down the time she drinks and the oz. so she started to drink milk at the same hours every day. when I started to do the book I started with 2ozs then after a month she started to cry for more so i bumped up to only 3 ozs. Now she cry for it only after 3hours and if she is a sleep i wake her up to drink milk so she can always be on her schedule. the doctor told me if she still looks like she want more to give her her pacifier cause sometimes is not that they want milk but want something to suck on.
personally i feed her at night even while she fully isn't awake. I rather know she isn't hungry at night cause i only feed her 3oz in the day but 2oz at night. If i would let her wake up on her own she would spent 6 to 7 hours asleep at night cause she have before so i don't do that. I spoke to my doctor and she said its okay to wake her up while asleep to feed her. I know alot of moms don't like to but it would hurt the baby if you do.
Yes she would and i didn't know how much until now lols. my daughter at 1 week and 4 days was holding her own bottle of milk with both hands wide open i have pics but this site wont let me download and i have another pic of her holding her bottle at 3 weeks. I have them up on Facebook if you wanna see. But she really is a good baby.
