This is a discussion on Edd, Feb 2011. within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; My gal drink 110ml every 3-4 hr. Sometime can't even finish it. Even my GP also said she drink very ...
Actually it doesn't matter how much they drink.
They drink lesser but asks for milk more frequently so it's okay.
My girl only had this massive intake recently & i decided to increase more because she has no more regurgitation & is also able to finish her milk whenever i feed her.
2 weeks ago she was still only drinking about 100ml.
dont't worry, they know when their hungry.
It's okay to feed lesser, but more frequently rather than feeding them less frequently but ended up 'overfeeding' at every feed.
My girl just weighed 2 days ago & she's 4.9kg now (3.655kg at birth).
It doesn't matter how much they drink, as long as they are gaining weight
this is very interesting... when you look at the weight and the amt they drink.
my gal is 5.7kg, at birth she is only a tiny of 2.4kg, looks like she has been gaining weight pretty good and drinks 120ml, sometimes after an hr she is hungry again and I will give her a 50ml snack.
I guess we should look at the total intake in 24 hours. My gal is drinking about 900 - 960ml per 24hr.
Definitely agree that as long as baby is gaining wt, they are doing fine, especially now she always smile and make coo coo sound
Ya, my gal also.. every morning she will smile to me and make the goo goo sound. Whenever we talk to her, she will reply with her goo goo sound also. Haha.. So cute!!
oh i actually wanted to ask if you have taken out your baby's mittens? Only recently I started to take out her mittens for a short time while i play with her. Her nails are so long and I am afraid she may scratch herself. She recently likes to put her mitten into her mouth and wet the whole thing. Cut her nails just now, decided to let her hands out for a longer time to feel the 'outside' world
I already take out her mittens 4weeks back..Start to cut her finger and tote nail when full month till now. Almost once every 2-3 days.
Thanks for your advice Moon Kok, I guess I need to cut her nails more often.
Did you smell the 'sour ' smell from your baby hand after you took out her mittens? Hee...very dirty also in between the fingers. Must clean for them also. My confinement lady teach me before she left. Btw, did you clean her ear also? My gal love it so much!! Everytime she will show me the face of enjoying. After I clean one side, she will automatically turn the other side for me to clean. Haha..so cute
she was 4.3kg at 8weeks old. ( was 2kg at birth )
i didnt wear mittens for her since full month over. cut her nails whenever i see it grows out. she will auto suck her thumb. sometimes she will suck her index finger. she suck till very loud n woke me up from my sleep. lol!
she already will respond to us when we talk to her.
anyone started the "stopping of night feedings".
i've started this routine since 2 weeks back. usually will feed her before i sleep.. 11pm/12midnight. then nx feed will be 7am/8am. sometimes 5am i will feed her 80ml. she dont cry for milk middle of the nite so i just let it be.
Delivered my girl on 03 Feb 2011 & my boy on 03 Jan 2013 =)
Wah... All your babies drinkg so much, do you all bf too?
For my case is day time bf, nite time formula milk.
Wah.. So good.. sleep for 5hrs... My baby dont like to sleep in e day, just stay awake n make noise n cry, want to talk n talk to him n entertain him, at nite, i bf but he always wake up every 2hrs.. Tiring.. N after feeding, dont sleep automatically, need to rock him n carry him to sleep..
I dont't dare to cut my baby's nails... so now still letting him wear mittens, dont't want him to scratch himself...
Actually my boss keep chasing me go back to work, ask me to put my gal to infant care and he will pay for it. But I've rejected him, coz I scared my gal might get sick easily. My gal sleeping timing very on time one, she will wake up at 8am and 'nua' until 9am then I will shower for her. After that will be her playing timing, until 12pm then she will take a short nap till 1pm. Then she will keep awake till 3pm or 4pm and wake up for milk at 5pm or 6pm. Then she will continue sleep until the next morning, in between only wake up for milk at 9pm, 1am, and 5am. So is easy for me to catch my time to do my own thing.
