How much does your 1 weeker drink?

* If on formula* How often and how much do they weigh? Mine weighs almost 8 lbs again (she lost a little at birth), she eats about every 3 hours... maybe 2.5- 2.75 oz. That's pretty normal, right?

  • Well Jacob is almost 2 weeks old, and he eats 2 1/2 ozs every 3-4 hrs.

  • If her eyes are bright and her diapers are getting wet at least every four hours and her soft spot is not sunken in, then she is fine.

  • My older two were taking about 4oz every 2 hours by one week. Yeah, huge eaters. (they were 8lbs 9oz and 9lbs 5oz at birth)

    My youngest was born early (7lbs at birth, 36 weeker) and was only taking 2oz every couple of hours.

    Some eat more, some eat less. What's normal for mine isn't normal for yours. It's going to be that way with EVERYthing involving babies, you'll find.
