my 2 month old baby is having breast milk and formula.. he has a big appetite and my milk is not sufficient for him.. how much formula can I give per feed..

how do u know dat ur milk is moy sufficient for him

Even after feeding for a long time he cries .. sometimes he's full and satisfied.. but sometimes he cries and pulls at the breast and fusses ..

have shatavri ex powder...don't give FM to Baby...n sometyms babies creates a habit of sucking the nipples just to get satisfaction...so don't think that ur bM is insufficient..

I am having lactonic granules powder.. actually we have already started formula since the first month.. so we don't wanna stop now.. he gets the best of both.. breast and formula.. his weight is good and growth is good.. so just wanted to know how much ml per feed is suitable for a 2 month old..

I guess it's written on the measuring chart naa...150ml for 4/5 tyms n all

I had the same problem. So my baby was on BF& FM. Even 1 teaspoon of BM is very powerful so dont worry. I give Enfamil formula...and it says 1 scoop per 30 ml. But this doesnt apply to all formulas& differ as per the brands. Check on the chart behind the box.

it's not about how many scoops per ml.. I wanted to know how much ml for a 2 month old.. right now we give 120ml per feed..

for 2 months baby it's 150ml of water with 5 scoop of powder...4/5 tyms in a day

thank you.. today we had a check up at 10 weeks.. the doc said his weight is a lil more than expected.. at 10 weeks he is 5.28kgs.. is that too much.. at 6 weeks he was 4.15.. she said don't give too much formula.. but when baby is crying for hunger and not satisfied with bm.. wat els can u do

careful with the formula cause the formula fat doesn't go away the breast milk does....for a 2 month old is like 4 to 5 oz and maybe try a pacifier..
