  • I fed My DS every 2-2.5 hrs when he was an infant.. I never let him get to the point of crying bc of being hungry.. I just kept up with this same time frame daily and he was happy as can be :)

  • My DD was taking about 2-3 oz every 2 hours or so formula feeding. He will let you know when he is full by turning his head away. You can always up the oz (if formula/bottle feeding) by a half ounce at a time. If he doesn't spit up then you know you aren't over feeding. good luck!
