Feeding poll

edited September 2013 in May 2013 Moms
I am wondering about feeding. Although we can't compare apples to oranges, I am curious about both breast and formula fed babies.

1. How old is LO?
2. Breast, formula, or combination?
3. How often does your LO eat?
4. If your LO takes a bottle, how many oz?

Eta, forgot a question.

BFP#1 "Watermelon" born 3/2011
BFP#2 "Pumpkin" 7/14/12 ~ EDD 3/23/13 ~ Natural M/C 8/3/12 @ 7 weeks
BFP#3 "Pineapple"  born 4/2013
BFP#4 "Grapefruit" EDD 3/29/16

Re: Feeding poll

  • For my kiddo:

    1. 4 months (19 weeks)
    2. Breast
    3. It's spreading out. Every 2 hours until last week, now we're doing some 3 or even 4 hour stretches.
    4. At daycare, LO is taking 3 to 4 oz of pumped bm.

  • 1. How old is LO? 16 weeks

    2. Breast, formula, or combination? Breast

    3. How often does your LO eat? 7-9 times per day - length between feedings really varies - usually every 2 hrs, but anywhere from 1.5 - 3.5 is normal for him.

    4. If your LO takes a bottle, how many oz? 3-4 oz pumped milk

    EBF

    Eats every 3 hours, roughly

    Way inconsistent with the bottle -- when she takes it she screams for a while and then sucks it down no problem. When she does, it's 4-5oz
  • 1. How old is LO? 15 weeks
    2. Breast, formula, or combination? FF
    3. How often does your LO eat? Every 3 hours during the day and 1 MOTN Feed
    4. If your LO takes a bottle, how many oz? 4oz
     


  • LO is almost 15 weeks

    Breastfed exclusively

    She eats on her own schedule. Sometimes thats 30 between feedings and sometimes 2.5 hours between.

    She has not had a bottle at this point.

    1. 16 weeks (on Monday).

    2. BF with the occasional bottle of expressed milk.

    3. Like @blush64 her daytime feedings vary between every 30mins to 3 hours. I do 2-3 MOTN feedings. It's very much baby led at the minute.

    4. During growth spurts we give one ounce but have given upto 6oz when she was particularly starving.

    1. LO was born 4/30 and is 4 months 1 week old 2. EBF 3. She eats every 2 hours during the day - sometimes more frequently, and STTN for 9 hours overnight 4. When we've given her expressed milk in place of a feeding, she eats 5 oz. but she only gets bottles very occasionally so a lot drips out - she isn't very good drinking from it LOL

    2. EBF
    3. Eats about every two hours (ranges from 1.5-2.5 but really only 2.5 if we're out) from the start of one feeding to the start of the next. But sometimes when she is tired she'll eat/nap for up to 45 mins, so the time free is short!
    4. She refuses the bottle, but she was taking 4-5 oz at 9 weeks before she started saying hell to the no

    we send her to school with 4oz bottles and she usually eats 3-4 oz of it. After boobs, she gets 2 oz bottles and sometimes she eats none of it, sometimes all of it. I think we averaged how much she eats in a day to around 22 oz...
