Eating different amounts at different times

I've been doing weighed feedings b/c my baby was slow to gain weight.  In the middle of the night and first thing in the morning DS gulps down 4-4.5 oz, but as the day wears on he only drinks around 2-2.5 oz.  He eats more often during the day (and goes two 4-5 hour stretches at night) so I don't know if it's a function of his hunger or my supply?  Any thoughts?

  • Thanks.

    We might be moving down to NC soon.  Are you from there?  I'm from Raleigh.

    normal: ds sleeps 6 hrs at night then eats 6 oz first thng in the morning, then the rest of the day he will eat about 2-2.5 hrs and alternate between snacky feedings (2oz) and good feeding (4oz) i've spent a good part of a day every so often at a place where i can weigh each of his feedings
