Is my LO feeding enough?
« on: October 10, 2005, 15:48:58 pm »
My LO is 3 months old and is on the 4 hour easy routine, but I am wondering if I am feeding him enough.

He sleeps for nearly 12 hours a night (truly blessed) and takes his first bottle at 7:30 am.

His routine is as follows :-

7oz - 7:30am
7oz - 11:30am
7oz - 3:30pm
7oz - 7:30pm

He does not usually finish every bottle, sometimes leaving about 1 oz in his bottles.

He was on 6oz every 3 hours but seemed to fight with most of his bottles as he was not very hungry.

He is still gainig weight, but am just a bit worried that he is not feeding enough - please can you give me some advice.

Thanks

What a fantastic routine!  Sounds like you're doing really well.

Do you think if I showed my 2 this post, they might 'get it'???!
