I think the recommendations should be used as a guide only. If he's hungry, he's hungry. Give him more. You cannot over feed a baby. If they have too much they vomit.
My son set his own schedule. The nurses said 60mls every 2 hours, he would take 120 every 3.5. His nappies were normal, no spitting up, no crying. He increased faster than the recommendation, but was larger than other babies his age. He also rolled, sat, crawled, and walked early so was expending more energy than kids in his age bracket. My doctor said the recommendation is based on the average, some will take more, others less.
Thanks so much girls. Formula feeding is so new to me and it's absolutely brilliant, as it's made my baby put on weight and thrive but of course I got all the guilt at the very beginning which is why I feel like giving too many may be gorging or over feeding them?? So silly I can't believe such a stigma exist when it comes to baby food! Thank k ou again lovelies have a great day.
There no set amount really they tell you when there hungry they tell you when full I always made bit more than what recommend on tin they either drink it or part of it they will tell you when full and content shouldn't be demand feeding normally means not full from feed time
