Does this seem normal? (feeding question)

Postby sheri-ct » Sun Oct 18, 2009 11:18 am

Does this seem normal? We are still nursing all sessions expect right before bed. I give her one bottle of EBM around 10-11 pm. For the past week she has been taking 6.5-7 oz! Doesn't that sound insane for a 2/3 week old that is 6.5 pounds? She nurses during the day every 2-4 hours. This morning she nursed at 4, 5, 6 and then nursed again from 7:30 until NINE!!!!! I couldn't take it anymore and gave her 2 oz of formula. She pees a lot, but only poops 4-5 times a day. Her belly seems HUGE to me. S&C were always really skinny, so I'm not sure if this is normal. It's not really hard and she does not seem to be uncomfortable. Growth spurt? Insufficient supply?
