Anyone whose baby was exclusively on fm , how many feeds was advised by ur pead and how much ml?

Satarupa B Kaur please pitch in

Baby is too small...So you need to feed every 2 hours... And start with 30 ml...If baby feeds well increase gradually.

I have been asked to give her 60ml 1 scoop of similac

I started formula feed my baby was 2 months old but then initially what you can do with start with 2oz and see d appetite in one and a half to two hours at the least. but before introducing formula so early you will have to talk to the pair tradition and ensure that you giving the right kind of formula and of course you will have your own reasons why no do feel free to share if you need any kind of help otherwise as well

Thanks for replying. Yes the pedeatrician told me to start with 2 feeds of 60ml 1 scoop of similac initially. 1 in the morning and 2nd in the evening. But it seems that she is satisfied only after formula. When I breast feed her she latches for an hour but after 30 mins she cries for feed. So the pedeatrician has asked to increase it to 4 feeds a day. Twice I am trying to express and feed her but if she still feels hungry will have to increase it to 5.
