BF Mom's - How much is your 12 week old eating

Hello fellow April mommies,

My little man was eating 4 oz. until about 9 weeks then we had to up him to 5 after that.  Just curious how many oz. your 12 week olds are eating?

  • 3 to 4 ounces every 2.5 to 3 hours at daycare

  • 4 oz every 3 hours or so
  • I'm a SAHM and we EBF so I don't know exactly how much he is eating. BF babies don't generally need much more than 4 ounces at a feeding, as the milk changes to meet their needs.

  • My mom watched him 2 weeks ago and I left 5 oz bottles just to be safe and, she called and said he still seemed hungry so I had her warm up another ounce. After that I left her 6 oz bottles and he finished them with nopproblem.
  • Before our nursing issues started at 12 weeks... she was taking 4-5oz BM every 3 hours or so, plus whatever she was getting while nursing.  I think she was in a growth spurt because she just gained 2 pounds seemingly overnight.

  • I send three 4 oz bottles to day care with an extra 2 oz just in case. I ask they try 4 oz first and if he just won't settle they can give him an extra ounce. It ends up working out where he'll take 2- 5oz bottles and 1-4 oz while there from 9am-4:30pm.

    I keep reading that BF babies shouldn't get more than 4 oz and its so easy to overfeed them...but I also trust my caregiver and if she thinks he needs more food, then I have no issue with giving him what he needs.

  • V is 13 weeks and will usually take 3-4oz every 2-2.5  hours. If he eats more than that (sometimes he acts like it), he'll just be cranky and spit up a lot.
    OMG too many tickers...
