  • Is she on cereal or food? Our doctor told us Emma won't starve herself and that all babies are different and go through different eating patterns.

  • Can you give more info? By that do you mean she's sleeping through the night? How many ounces is she eating in a normal day? Is she eating 32 oz. in a day?

  • My 3 month old breastfed baby nurses every 3 hours during the day, but goes 10-11 hours at night without eating. Pretty much the same pattern as my older ones, and they're healthy.

  • 8oz is alot for a feeding. My 6 month old is drinking 6 oz every 3 hours, at 3 months he was drinking 4 oz. every 3-4 hours. He is a big boy too, he was 16lbs at 3 months and is now 22lbs.
