  • about 2 oz every 3 to 4 hours if bottle feeding. Breast feeding should be on demand i think. not positive i couldnt breast feed.

  • BFing is on demand...when my DD was that young (shes 5 mo.) she would eat for about 10 minutes on each side but end up falling asleep after a while...you just kind of have to squeeze her cheek and tap her chin to wake her up....and if you ever do pump and give her the bottle just remember that the babies are much more efficient about draining the breast.

  • Breast fed babies are on demand. In a growth spurt you will be lucky to get a trip to the potty without baby attached LOL.

  • Guess what folks....formula feeding is on demand as well.

    It doesn't matter how you feed your baby. Feed on demand...amount and frequency.
