I am just wanting to compare stats. Ben was weighed today at 12 lbs 4 oz and he was 23 inches long. He is eating between 4 and 5 oz at a time. He is 6 weeks old this week. How are your babies doing?

My baby is doing about the same. He was 11lbs 9 oz and 22.5 inches long. He eats about 4.5 oz every 3-4 hours.

My son is 5 weeks, weighs 11 lbs 5 oz 22.5 inches long. He eats 3 oz every 3 hours, sometimes 4 ozs. I am so tired - I am a walking zombie! Let us all pray for some sleep soon!

My son will be 6 weeks Tuesday and we just went to the dr and he weighed 11 lbs 13 oz and was 23 3/4 inches! He eats 8 oz every 3-4 hours! Why is my baby eating so much more? He was at 4 oz before we left the hospital! What age can I introduce cereal?

Amandababy, your son does eat a lot! Maybe he is growing. He sounds like a big boy, especially being almost 24" long. I began introducing my second son to cereal when he was consistently taking 8 oz bottles at a time. He was three months old at the time. I think 6 weeks might be a little early for cereal but what do I know? Ask your doc about it next time, maybe they can recommend something.
