  • It depends. How many wet diapers does she have a day? How much does she eat at one time? I;ve seen the general rule of 2.5 times babies weight, but that is more of a guideline rather than a set rule. Some eat more and some eat less. I ahve found that my little girl lets me know when she needs to eat and when not. Sometimes she eats like a little piggy and other days she hardly eats a all.

  • mine is three months and does the same thing. mine takes about 25 ounces a day tops, he is 14 pounds, i am always worried he is not getting enough, he only eats about 3 ounces at a time.

  • Like the first poster said, the answer is in the diapers. if you are changing at least 6 wet diapers a day, you are golden. Poopy diapers ... that's varies so much with babies. it can be at very diaper change, or once a week!

    so yeah, if baby is peeing, happy, and all that, you are probably doing well.
