FF Babies — The Bump

FF Babies

Just curious what the FF babies are up to in consumption these days. My guy is a real foodie, which is in part why I'm so curious. He eats 5 oz every 3 to 4 hours. At night he goes one 4 to 5 hour stretch, and then back to every few hours. The last couple days he has had a couple feedings where he only wanted 2-3 oz, which is really bazaar for him!

  • My LO normally has four ounces every 2.5 hours when we are at home.  He doesn't eat overnight though.

    When he is at daycare, they typically feed him five ounces every 2.5-3.5 hours. I am okay with them doing five ounces if he goes 3.5 hours between feeds, but I don't like them doing five ounces when he only goes 2.5 hours between feeds because I think that is overfeeding him.  I have asked them to only give five ounces if he goes 3 or more hours between feeds, but they say he cries if he only gets four ounces. I don't really get that because he never cries with four ounces at home, but I guess with his schedule not being as rigid as at home, maybe he needs more.

    Sorry for the little diatribe there; I'm just a little upset I don't have full control over his feedings anymore.

    Oh, and LO will be five months this weekend and is about 16 pounds.

  • He's eating 6oz every 4ish hours. Except at night he sleeps 9-10 hours (yes I know how lucky I am). He weighed 14.6 at his 4 month. He will be 5 months on the 10th. 5 months. Holy...

  • 5 oz every 3ish hours during the day for 25 oz in 24 hours.  He doesn't always sttn, but doesn't eat at night either.  Just needs a paci if he wakes up.  We just had his 4 month appt today and he's 14 lbs.  He had a hard time gaining weight at first because I couldn't produce enough milk for him.  Formula made him a much happier baby!

  • I'm glad this is here...I was wondering if Z was just a MANIAC eater.  He weighs about 15lbs (will get official weight on Monday) and is consuming around 27-32 ounces a day.  When we're home with him, he'll go 3 hours between eating and take 6oz bottles. At daycare? It's all over the place.  But, he usually ends up taking the same amount of total oz. per day, so I've stopped trying to micromanage how they feed him. 

    He goes 10-11 hours without eating over night.

  • He eats differently at home than at daycare.  At home he's up to about 5 ounces every 4 hours or so but at daycare he does 2.5-4 ounces anywhere from 2-3.5 hours apart.  At night he sleeps from 8 until around 3 or 4 and then goes back down until around 6 or 7.
