Hi all
Any advice on how to get my 4 month old to take bigger feeds at longer intervals? He currently eats every 2 hours and will only take max 100mls. He’s FF and at his age he should be on 5 feeds in 24 hours at around 210ml per feed...

Rachel unfortunately there's no "should be" with feeding babies. The best advice is to feed when baby wants to and let them take as much or as little as they like.

If your baby is taking the required amount, 2.5 floz of formula per pound in weight in 24 hours, there's absolutely nothing to worry about or fix smile
