  • I never burped them until they finished the bottle, but if that is working out for you, fine. It just sounds like a lot of work. 4 ounces is fine. Is she finishing the bottle? I would give as much as she will take.

  • You're doing good. My six week old never ate that much at a time, but burping after every ounce is a good general rule. It is good because that way they have a break for their brains to sense whether or not they are full. Good job momma!

  • Doc always said about half way through the bottle burping not nec. every ounce..but sounds good to she spitting up like you fed too much or is she apearing satisfied after eating!?
