Hello everyone I'm new to here and a new mam to a beautifull 2week old baby girl. I'm asking for advice I'm formula feeding and she is having 5oz every 3-4hours in the day but will go longer and night! I'm worried she's having to much but she wants it so I don't want to not give it to her! Thank you x

Welcome smile

So she has about 30 oz over 24 hours?

It sounds more than average....in imperial, a rough rule of thumb is 2.5 oz per pound of body weight in 24 hours, and in metric, 150 ml per kg of body weight in 24 hours.

But the 'right' amount is what she seems to need at the moment. What does your HV say?
