Baby's milk intake

Postby O_M_G » Tue Mar 11, 2014 2:43 pm

My baby girl is 2 weeks old and we have been re-visiting the polyclinics a couple of times through this 2 weeks. previously the doctor said that she should have as much milk as she likes as long as she's satisfied. With that, we feed our baby girl a variation of 60ml -120ml per session every 3-4 hrs. But we were badly scolded my the doctor today for over-feeding her. Would like to check on the range of amount we should be providing her.

She started of with breast milk and now she's doing both formula and breast milk. Breast milk going at 60ml - 80ml a day and the rest with formula.

Anyone? :sweat:

Approx 150ml per kg body weight per day. Eg. a 4 kg baby should take about 600ml per day. This is a rough guideline and babies will vary.
