  • Depends on the baby but the average is about 2 or 3 ounces every 3 hours or so...

  • 2 to 2.5 ounces per pound of body weight in 24 hours as an overall oz count. Portion wise start at 2, if baby drinks all of that, then move to 3.

  • A 2 week old baby should be eating breastmilk....And to the pp, a formula fed infant does not know when they're full and they WILL over eat.
