Q:

hi ladies .. i am new mom my daughter is 4 months old n she take only 75-60 ml in evry feed aft 3 hrs nd in night aft 5 hrs .. is it enf for one feed 0r how can i increase her appetite ??



Mahi Gajwani

According to me..it's insufficient...may be it can vary from baby to baby ...but my baby use to take 30 ml of formula milk in first 2 months every 1.5 hours...n sometimes to 60 ml too ....
So it all depends upon baby hunger...
Try to latch the baby ...if giving formula increase the intake...

hi sonali - i exclusively BF my baby for the first 6 months. let me share a very helpful article with you. at 4 months most babies get distracted and start drinking for shorter periods. pls don't start formula without consulting ur pead.
