    How old is your baby and how much are they eating?

    I bottlefeed with formula and Ava was taking 2-3 ounces of formula every 4 hours until she was like 2 weeks old. Now, at 5 weeks old, she takes 3-4 ounces every 3 hours on the dot!

    sorry amber i am unable to help, Danielle is nearly 11 weeks old and is completely b/f. not sure how much she gets but i am over the moon with her weight gain. birth weight 6lb 10oz, which dropped to 6lb 3oz in first week. at 10 weeks she weighed 9lb 5.5oz.

    is ava`s weight gain steady? if so i wouldn`t worry. she will let u know if she isn`t getting enough and it will also show in her weight

    hope this helps alittle

    I'm so disappointed to not be breastfeeding. I tried it for the first 2 days in the hospital and felt a bond like no other! The day I was discharged from the hospital I had a spinal headache which kept me in bed a lot for 2 weeks before it started to go away. So I pretty much gave up on breastfeeding as my husband took over most of the feedings during that time.

    Ava was born at 8lbs 1oz and I'm not worried about her weight gain at all, she's a little chubberoo!! I was just curious to how much everyone elses babies are eating.
