  • Make sure you do not give the baby cow milk yet until they are atleast 1 year of age.
    formula give them 2-5oz they will let you know when they are full. GL

  • three week old babies vary on the amount of breast milk or formula they take. It depends on what your baby needs in order to fill his/her tummy. The baby will stop eating when it's full and cry like crazy when it's hungry..

  • The best amount is however much formula or breastmilk she will drink. She'll stop when she's full or uncomfortable.

  • but make sure you burp him/her before you let him/her stop stop. cause a baby can be full cause they have a huge belch in there so burp him/her and when it comes out she/he will be hungry again lol.

  • NO milk until baby is at least 1 year old or over 20 pounds look up NEC necrotizing entercolitis!

  • Well my son is around 12 wks old and I have been souly breastfeeding him and pumping my milk at night because he sleeps for around 10 hrs a night, He drinks around 6 oz every feeding or that is what I pump... BUT most do eat around 3 or 4 oz until they are 6 months old...
