Day 21 - How much to feed your baby

Today's Tip - Feed your baby an ounce an hour as a general rule of thumb

Babies don't usually overeat, so if you're worried about him getting too much, its probably a fear you can put to rest. If your baby is eating less and not gaining weight, you should definitely contact your pediatrician. Sometimes your baby will eat one ounce every three hours, and other times he'll down seven ounces at a feeding. Be in tune with your infant and give him what he needs - if there's a problem with the amount he'll let you know by demanding more with a cry or demanding you stop by refusing to suck.
