how much and how often did or does your nine week old eat. dd eats at night time from about 10or 11pm she eats 6oz every four hours then in the day time after noon she eats 5-6 oz every 2-3 hours and after 6pm hits she litterally eats every hour anywhere from 4-5 oz and will scream untill i feed her. does that seem like to much. she doesnt give me any choice but to feed her that much i just dont know if i am missing something and she isnt hungry and its something else that wrong

I dont think that sounds like its too much. Ka__sidy is also 9 weeks old. She eats about 5 or 6 oz per feeding. She drinks about 5 of these bottles a day. Starts out around 7:30am.. she eats a 6oz bottle, then at noonish she has another. Then again at 4ish she has another 6oz bottle, 8 she has another.. and the last one of the day is usually at around 11pm. She sleeps from 11 until 7:30 and the cycle starts again. How much does she weigh? I think she sound pretty healthy to me. ~Kristin~

she is almost 11 lbs i think the every hour thing may be a growth spurt because i never connected the two before but she has been sleeping longer at night. so maybe its just a transition phase because between 6pm and 11pm she eats a whole days worth of food and has been doing this fo rthe last 4 or 5 days but has only been sleeping longer for about 2 days.

Yeah sounds like it could definatly be a growth spurt. Ka__sidy weighed 10lbs 3oz 2 weeks ago.. she is going to get weighed again tomorrow. She sounds like she is doing splendidly and I wouldnt worry about how much she is taking in. The growth spurt could definatly have her eating a lot more then usual. ~Kristin~

My LO is 12 weeks old and for about the past 3 weeks he takes 5 6oz bottles per day and gets up once in the middle of the night for about 4oz and goes back to sleep. For example, he starts feeding at 8am and takes 6oz, then at 12 another 6oz, 4pm 6oz and 10pm 6oz. He might go until 2am and take about 4 oz and then gets up for another 6 oz bottle around 6am and the day starts all over. Basically, he takes a 6 oz. bottle every 4 hours on the average. I hope this helps. Felisha, it sounds like your baby is doing fine and is perfectly normal. :-)
