Mommy to aeh
If it helps, my baby was eating a little more than that at 3 weeks and my pediatrician assured me I wasn’t over feeding! My baby does go through phases of how much she eats. Sometimes she won’t eat more than 3 ounces in a sitting, other times she will gulp down 7 😳

Hi there! I have big eaters (3 kiddos), my youngest is 6 weeks. There are definitely feedings where they eat that much! I know it can be so stressful, also agree to ask your doc. However, my first Dr told me to limit feeding but my daughter was hungry! Needless to say I switched doctors :)

New mom figuring it out
Are you measuring the amount based on the water volume or water plus powder volume? I believe you should be measuring based on just the water volume (before powder is added). My pediatrician told me you can’t overfeed a newborn.

Hi Meagan! Sorry to hear that you are stressing out. We recommend asking your pediatrician for their recommendation in terms of the exact amount of formula intake for your baby.
