Baby Eating Too Much

rmoses - December 29

Hello. I have a 27 day old infant and I am worried that he is eating too much. He weighs about 9lb 5oz ( he was born 9lb 15oz ) He eats about every 3-4 hours and usually will eat around 6oz of formula. To me, this seems like a lot, especially because he seems to still be hungry afterwards sometimes. At first i thought this was due to a growth spurt, however he has been eating this amount for around 2 weeks now. Is this healthy? Has anyone else had this happen to them this early? or should I take him to the pedi?

What milk you got him on????? My son want had to be moved onto aptamil hungry baby at 3 weeks old and he was having arounf 5oz per feed and then around 5 weeks on 6-7ozs and that satisfied him unti he was 8 weeks when he wanted 9oz every hour on the hour at which point i started to wean him. A health visitor/doc will tell you what the text book says. I wouldnt say your baby is being over fed??? ie i guess its not fat, im not talking about the normal baby fatty rolls im on with proper fatty areas,
