feeding baby

my baby girl is 2 weeks old now and i was just wondering when do you give the baby more formula? my baby is beginning to cry for her bottle sooner now. so instead of feeding every 3-4 hours, i've noticed she's beginning to cry for her bottle more often at about every 2 hours. is that normal? is there a certain month you should put more in her bottle or is it that every baby is different and it just depends?

  • Is she sucking it down and still acting like she wants more? You could always add another ounce and see if she will drink it. All babies are different and some eat more than others or less. Just go with your instincts. If it seems like she want more, give her another ounce or another couple ounces. She will not over eat, and if she by chance does you will know. My girls if they over ate would spit up. You will figure out with time how much she wants.

  • My DD at about 2 weeks old was drinking 3 oz every 3-4 hours but you're right every baby is different.
