    :wave:Health visitor came today and asked how much Harry was feeding, he's draining a 3oz bottle every 3-4hours and sometimes cries for more (mayb twice a day he will cry for more so I make another oz) she suggested I switched him to hungry baby formula. I'm not to sure on this as I know it upsets their belly and can make them sick until their used to it! So how much are your little ones drinking? Xx

    My health visitor said not to try the hungry baby stuff and every 2/3 feeds give her an extra ounce in her bottle, she also takes 3oz every 3/4 hours. X

    Yeah that's what I'm kind of doing now! I know health visitors/midwifes know babies and their job but a mother knows what's best for her own IMO :) xx
