I'm not naturopath and doula - if your child is hungry, feed them. If they are being fed, held and loved, they will grow strong, healthy and happy. A tin label is a guideline, but follow your instinct as a mum - you'll know best about what your baby needs.
My son was eating double what they recommendedn pretty much from the beginning. He leveled off around 3-4 mos old, but still always took a little extra. I saw a pediatric nutritionist. She said his weight gain was normal, growth too. No spitting up, or digestion issues. He is now 9, tall for his age and lanky. He eats a lot, just always has. He won a chicken wing contest today against grown men! After he ate a piece of pizza aND spent 2 hours running around the boucers. Check with your doc, but you know your kid. If he's hungry, let him eat. His brain and body are growing very fast. He needs a lot of fuel
It's fine, have had two bubs over eat and technically it's just the body preparing to grow. If Bub wants a bottle, feed Bub! If Bub wants boob, feed Bub! :-)
