How much formula should a 5 wk. old be drinking? My son drinks about 5 oz. and sometimes more. The most he has had was around 6.5 oz. and is it to early to start cereal? Can you put it in a bottle and how much cereal and how much formula should you mix with it? He also doesn't poop every day, it's everyother day and when he does, sometimes it looks hard and sometimes it's soft, is this normal? Could it be too much iron in the formula. I use Enfamil Lipil with Iron. I go to his doctor this friday and I'll probably ask him, but I just wanna knw what everyone else's input is.

Hi there. my dd is 3 and 1/2 months and eats 5oz every 3-4 hours. When she was 5 weeks she was only eating 3 oz every 3-4 hours. I think the amt. is fine. How often does he eat? I'm not sure about the cereal in the bottle, i have never done it. I would probably ask your doctor about it. Hope this helps..

he eats every 3-4 hours, I knw every baby is different but I just think thats a little bit too much for a 5 wk old. He's actually been eating like that for a couple wks.

My 2 month old eats about 4 oz every 3 hours. Once in a while she'll eat 5 oz if she sleeps 4 hours. When she was 5 weeks, she was only eating 2-3 oz every 2-3 hours. I would not put cereal in his bottle though. He is too young for that.
