I never had this issue with my son so I do not know what to do.
The pediatrician told me my daughter only gets 3 ounces every 3 hours (she is 7 weeks old) Well the 3 ounces just isn't working, its like she foregets that she ate. anyways she is now taking 4-5 every 2 - 4 hours my MIL said the formula is not satisfying her to put rice cereal in her bottle, well the pediatrician said no way if she gets fussy after 3 ounces to just give her a binkie - well I tried that she wants nothing to do with a binkie and she screams until I feed her more. What the heck do I do, is the pediatrician maybe a little old fashioned (he was my husbands pediatrician we got him for the kids cause my MIL said "he's the best" but then again she thinks everything she does or has is the best) What would you do?

i think you need a new ped. if a baby is hungry feed it. there is no right or wrong amount. you may eat less than i do and feel full where it might take me twice as much... at this age you cant be looking at amounts unless the baby is under weight. plus if you can get away with out a binkie than do it, who wants to ween a binkie if you don't have to... she is way too young for rice cereal that will only make things worse by upsetting her tummy. if she wants 6 oz and does fine with it give it to her. there is no need in worrying about her being over weight at this age, just healthy and satisfied.
