Thanks for your reply! I'm hoping that's what it is, she hadn't gained much at her last weigh so expecting a big increase!

My DS was born 33+5 and we we bought him home, there were times he was draining large bottles like you wouldn't believe. He went dark
80mls to 150ml every 3 hours over the space of 2 days. He's back down to 120 mls every 3-5 hours now but we figured he just went through a growth spurt!

Hey guys, my daughter was born at 32+6 weighing 4lb1oz and has since gone up to 4lb12oz in 4 weeks. She has been home from NICU for 1 week now and was struggling to gain weight and have enough milk (I am FF) however in the last few days she is now clearing around 140ml a bottle every 2-3 hours whereas a few days ago it was maybe 40ml every 2-3 hours. Is this massive increase normal or is she over feeding herself? She possets a little but not enough to be concerned about.
