Suwoo - I am really sorry that BFing has ended for you but I just wanted to say I have never seen so much determination and hard work - you are really inspiring and I think you should be really proud of yourself. I hope to god that doesn't sound patronising as it's the last thing I mean, I am just in awe of what you've done
I've no idea on the amounts of formula but I do remember my DS just chunking out at around 12 weeks, suddenly he had about 3 chins and chunky wrists
I also want to say that you have donw so well to get this far, and as your ds is puttingon so much weight on formula then you obviously made the right decision. I had to ff my ds2 from a similar age because he was listless and losing weight, and the same thing happened with him. Just give your dc lots of extra cuddles, which I am sure you do anyway If he is happy and thriving then you are doing extremely well.
I can't believe how much he's taking or how much he's put on! As others have said he's probably just got some catching up to do. DD put on 12 oz in her first week of having bottles but since then it's been more like 4 oz.
I guess if it carries on and you are worried about him taking too much you could try giving him a bit of water in between feeds or maybe a dummy but at the moment it sounds like he needs the milk and is doing well on it.
I take it he's having 6oz per feed? Will he take a bit more in the hope of going a bit longer? <she says, dreaming of the day that DD will take 6oz!>
I'm sure it will settle down soon but it must be exhausting! 10 bottles
