My dd is 11 weeks old tomorrow (eeeek goes to quick!) and iv been told she feeds a lot! I was just wondering what other people's little ones were like in comparison,
She is currently drinking 35oz in a 24hour period, 7oz every 3 hours 5 times a day then sleeps through.
She was born at 6.7lbs and never lost any weight, she weighed 11.11lb on Wednesday when she would of been 10 +4 weeks.

I would like to add she was breastfed for the first few days of her life however I was advised (by a midwife) to stop as she wouldn't latch properly and instead just wanted to chew!

Thanks in advance for your input!

DS2 is 18 weeks. Had 5x6 oz= 30oz then no feeds at night. Has been on this routine for about 6 weeks. Does not finish all bottles. Not sure how much he weighs but was 5lb3 at birth and 12lb ish at 3 months.

DD is 14 weeks was 6lb 8oz at birth, is now 13lb 4oz. She has 32oz spread over 5oz and sleeps through the night. I feed her 3hrly during the day. She's on SMA gold, there guidelines suggest 35oz over 5 feeds by 4mobts old. Not sure of the guidelines for other formulas. The guidelines also state to feed on demand so I wouldn't worry too much as long as he's happy grin

Thanks everybody for your input,
I feed my daughter when she wants it and never force her to feed, so I really don't get how some people can think I'm over feeding her, just one of those things I suppose!
