I have been having to write down everything my newborn eats for my WIC appointment tomorrow. From 8:30 am to 8:20 p.m. she has drank 14 1/2 ounces of formula/br___tmilk. I am sure a little of this dribbled down her chin, or she spit a little bit of it up. Is this normal??? Does anyone know how much she should be eating? She is 9 days old today and weighed 7 pounds 0.6 ounces at birth.

It sounds like she is eating a pretty good amount. I dont think there is a set amount she should be eating. Some babies eat more than average and some eat less. As long as she is gaining weight you should have nothing to worry about.

I think I heard somewhere that they should eat 2 ounces for every pound they weigh so it sounds like she is right one track. I can't remember where I heard that....probably on this website somewhere :-)
