Infant feeding

10 week old feeding 4 times a day

So my LO is 10 weeks old and for the past few days is only feeding 4 times a day. She's sleeping through the night from 9.30pm till around 8am with the odd day of 9am. She feeds around 9am then around every 5 hourly and has about 5/6oz at a time. I've tried to squeeze in a 5th bottle, or feed her before the 5 hours is up but she just doesn't want it. She's a good weight and is due to be weighed again next week, plenty of wet nappies, plenty of poos and is very alert during the day when she isn't napping. Does this sound okay? I'm a FTM and its worrying me.

If she’s ff, it’s not the amount of bottles you need to take into consideration, it’s he number of floz Smile

She needs 2.5 floz per pound in weight, so if she’s 10 pound, she needs 25 floz over 24 hours. If you work it out like this, does it sound about right?

So would you say she's getting between 25 and 27 floz over a day on average? Smile

My lo is 15 weeks old and since Christmas she's has been the same as yours laurensarah22 although she's drinking more 6-7oz and only wanting 4 feeds. Sleeps from 9- 8 and she's 13lb 4 roughly
