Today my son is two weeks old and he isn't satisfied with two to three ounces. He finishes the bottle and still seems to be hungry. It's been four years since I've had a newborn so I was wondering if its ok to give him more. The doctor said to feed him when he seems hungry but didn't say anything about increasing the amount of formula. Help!

It's a growth spurt. Smaller, more frequent feedings is best. Right now his belly is so small and you don't want to stretch it out by feeding four ounces at once.

Growth spurt.  (:  I pretty much was camped out with a baby attached to my boob during the 2 week growth spurt.
