    Should he be drinking? He is taking about 20-30ml a feed every 2-3 hours? Is it enough?

    I think that sounds about right, when sam was struggling to feed the nursery nurse worked out he should be having 30-40ml every 2-3 hours!If he seems content then im sure its enough xxx

    Jack was a rubbish drinker when he was born (still only manages 4oz each feed and he's 6.5mths old!) Sounds like Orlando's doing fab! He'll drink more when he's ready hun! x

    He will deffo let u know when he is hungry. When i switched to ff, he was only taking 3oz every three hours, when he started to drain the bottles i upped an oz..... Somtime he wudnt finish so i dropped back down an oz iykwim.
    Carry on as you are he will deffo let u know when he is ready for more...his belly is so tiny atm!

    You will instinctively know when to up it..he will tell you when he's not getting enough. What I did is made a note of the feeds and times etc and showed it to the midwife on my 5 day check :) she will advise you whether to change anything but sounds like hes doing fine x
