  • Okay, thanks for sharing :)

    I just had my daughter on May 17th, and they told me she shouldn't be eating more than 2oz every 3-4 hours, but she seems to be hungry more than every 3-4 hours. So lately she has been eating 2oz every 2-3 hours, and then at night she eats 3oz every 3-4 hours.

    I was just checking to see if my daughter is eating more than she should be or not.

  • No prob. You'll see that some days she might eat more or less and you'll get used to her schedule. You can't always go by exact textbook terms and her pediatrician will be the best resource for checking if she's growing at the average rate. Oh yeah, CONGRATS!!

  • 2oz. Every hour and a half or so! They will go through cluster feedings too, when it seems like they nothing but eat all day! Lol!
