  • Formula fed babies, just like breastfed babies, should be fed on demand. Not on a schedule, or by certain amounts.

  • there is no set schedule.. but i have a little chart here from my doctors office... 1-2 months 6-8 average number of feedings in 24hrs, 3-4 ounces per feeding and 18-32 ounces a day. Mind you, all babies are different... so dont think there is a set rule.... baby411 is a great book to have... lots of help!

  • As much as she wants, as often as she wants. (or he...)

    My boys were taking about 6oz every 2 hours at 4 weeks. (yeah...HUGE eaters)

  • none-- babies are not supposed to have ANYTHING other than breastmilk in their tummies for the first six months. their stomachs are not equipped to handle anything else, and formula can set baby up for a lifetime of health problems. not to mention, the risks of not giving breastmilk
