My daughter's feeding schedule is stressing me out! She had a period where she lost a little weight, so for the past 3 weeks I've been porking her up (per the advice of our pediatrician). We got her back up the 25th percentile from the 3rd (14 lbs 1 oz to 16 lbs 15 oz), and now that she is back in the normal range I don't know how much to feed her. I was nursing every 2 hours and giving her 6 tablespoons of cereal (mixed with 4 oz of breastmilk) and 4 oz of fruits or veggies each day. I know most babies eat every 4-5 hours by now, but I'm nervous to go anymore then 3 hours because I don't want her to lose weight again. To make matters difficult, my daughter NEVER cries for food (as in NEVER). If I wait for her cues, she won't eat, thus I feed her based on time intervals. I'm tired of trying to figure out if she should be eating more, if she's hungry, ect. Help!
