How often should you feed (approx) a 6 week old baby formula? For reasons I have had to give up breast feeding and she was demand fed which I do not know how much she was actually drinking. But I now confused as to how often baby should be feeding? I'm not going to stick to any schedule as that is the mistake I made with my first born so she will feed when she shows me the signs she is hungry. But for me to gage she's not going too long between feeds about how long are your babies going between feeds? Last night I started her off with 4oz of formula but two hours later she was looking for more. Gave her more but she didn't take all the bottle and I left it at that and she slept till 5:15am this morning. I made a 5oz bottle with 1oz remaining and when I went to wind her all her back was soaking wet like the milk had been leaking out of her mouth and draining down the back of her if you get my meaning? But since then she has been asleep. Feeling confused as to how often she should be feeding especially in this god forsaken heat! I don't think baby is that warm atm as I got a fan on swivel across the room from us and she is currently in a short sleeved vest with a thin blanket that has holes in it over her bottom half. She also slept like this last night in living with me as I can't get upstairs due to broken ankle. Thanks F.
