My one month old eats constantly. We told the pediatrician day before Thanksgiving. She said to put rice cereal in his bottle if he is eating more than 32 oz in 24 hours, but I can't remember how much she said. At the time we didn't have an actual figure - just that it seemed that we were constantly feeding. With 6 hours left in the 24-hour period he is nearly maxed out on ounces. He grew over 3.5 lbs and 3 in. in one month. He poops fine although gets pretty gassy at times. He rarely spits up - only when he won't stop at 4 oz in a feeding - we are told to feed on demand but that is too much, yet nothing else seems to console him. I'm guessing he is mistaking belly aches of some kind with hunger but I can't be sure... He is on a gentle/sensitive formula and a small percentage of breast milk. (I am trying to increase my milk but it's been a problem to breastfeed thanks to severe mastitis - I was hospitalized for four days - and pumping all the time while trying to care for myself and baby is next to impossible). He just had a bottle with 1 tsp cereal with 2 oz formula and .5 oz breast milk. He seems like he is not as fussy.
Anyone else have a baby that ate all the time etc.? What helped?
