  • No when they are hungry feed them. Mine drank 3-4 OZ every 1.5 hours. He is super happy and healthy. I was so worried about doing it by the book but every baby is different so you know what youre needs. :)

  • I am not sure how it is with FF baby's but I nursed on demand.

    I would not limit a baby's diet that early. If baby is hungry feed the baby.

    It doesnt seem like a lot-my son nursed every 2 hours.
