Baby Feeding Questions
I have a couple of questions-

*How many times can you reheat formula? Just once, after it's been refridgerated? (I'm not sure about this because I've just begun supplementing my son with formula)

*How many oz should a 2-month-old baby drink per day?

*He cries when he is being fed (and I know he is hungry-- but he shakes his head, then will suck on the bottle.. and shake his head again), does this mean he's tired?

How come you're supplementing with formula? Giving a bottle will decrease your supply, and possibly cause nipple preference.

A 2 month old should nurse on demand, whenever he wants, for however long he wants..

What apathetictoot said.

-I have no idea how many times forumla should be reheated..i would think only once, but I don't know.

-Bout 4oz or less.

-If youre supplementing he may not WANT the formula. Have you ever tasted formula..it's pretty icky, and if your babe is getting breastmilk too...he could be rejecting it because of the taste.

my doctor told me a baby should eat atleast 2- 2.5 oz times his weight per day but i never really calculated it out to see if it were correct
13lb baby x 2 = 26
13lb baby x 2.5= 32.5

forgive me if my math is wrong lol
