Just curious really as to how much and how often your babies eat?
Mine is having 3/4ozs every 3/12-4 hours. He weighed 5lbs 8 at birth and was almost 3 weeks early.

That's really good. Once baby starts to drain the bottles or wanting them more frequently then start to increase oz 's

They should have roughly 2.5 floz of first stage formula per pound of weight, so if he's 7lbs, that's roughly 17.5 floz in 24 hours.

Hth. Did you know that MN has and "infant feeding" section too? smile

Sounds good to me. My two girls took very different amounts so it's really dependent on the baby but sounds like he's doing well. X
