  • Eating every 4 hours is great, try to get her to eat more like 2 1/2 oz at each feeding she will increase her amount by 2-3 weeks as long as she isn't losing to much and gaining then she is doing great. I think that you should pick up a copy of "What to expect in the 1 st year" if you haven't got a copy yet please get a copy ASAP i call it the MY MOMMY BIBLE.  I hope this helps you out your doing a great job momma keep your head up.

  • Feed on demand. She shouldn't have a schedule yet.

  • Feed her whenever she is hungry, she may start feeding more often soon when the growth spurt starts. You may try pumping every 2 to get your supple up and to have some stashed!

  • My daughter fed every 2-3 hours. As raemommy said What to expect the first year was a life saver. If I had any questions I would refer to the book and my question was always answered. My daughter is now 15 months old and now I owe What to expect toddler years and its the most informative books I have ever owned. It is money well spent. Whenever the baby is hungry feed her but make sure its not more then 4 hours
