  • Breastmilk or formula? Does he eat 12 times a day? What about wet diapers? Stools? Do you know how much weight he is gaining?

  • Formula. He has a lot of wet diapers, once a day he will have a dirty diaper, sometimes he goes a full day without pooping. Last checkup he was 11 pounds and that was a month ago. But I weighed myself holding him and he was 10 lbs, but I dont know how accurate that is..

  • I wouldn't worry too much about it. Tell the doctor when you're at his 4 month check up if it hasn't stopped by then. Sometimes they eat more, sometimes they don't. They usually eat more when they are having a growth spurt or something.

  • Mine is eating two oz now and she is only a month old. Could I be letting her eat too much? I can never tell how much she is getting though since I breast feed. I give her a bottle only at her three a.m. feeding
