  • My doctor told me that babies should eat 2-3 ounces per pound they weigh per day. So if your baby weighs 10 pounds they should eat between 20-30 ounces in a 24 hour period. How true is it? not sure, my daughter always ate less then what she was "supose" to eat and shes just fine <3

  • I don't know much about formula, but I know that for breast milk, babies need 1 to 1.25 ounces per hour. So 2-3 ounces about every 2-3 hours sounds about right to me.

  • Don't got by any guideline... your baby will let you know when he/she is full. As long as your baby is gaining weight normally, don't worry.
