    when dear son was 1 month old he was around 4.9kg and drank 120ml every 2hrs.

    every baby is diffe, some weight heavier, some lesser. some drink more, some lesser =)

    My daughter is one month old now and she used to drink 100ml breastmilk every 2 hours..however, recently it seems its not enough and she would want to feed again after half an hour..that's why I would like some reference..

    She's 4.9kg at 3 weeks and doc is concerned that she's gaining too much weight too fast..I dont't want to starve her but scared she eating too much also..

    what is your girl's birth weight? dear son birth weight as 2.9kg and he was nearly 5kg when he was 5 week old. so he gained around 2kg..

    She was born 3.48kg and weighs 4.9kg during her three week check up.. So she gained about 1.4kg within 3 weeks..

    Did not weigh her recently as we dont't have the weighing scale..

    i think is okay. cos we should not judge by the weight, should judge by hw much she gain. average weight to gain per month should be 800g - 1kg. dear son was 2.9 and 5 week old he was 4.9, nearly 5kg. so he gained 2 kg is 5 weeks, pediatrician said it was more than other babies but he also told us not to wry cos every baby is diffe =)

    The rule of thumb is to offer him 2.5 ounces of formula per pound of body weight each day. If you bf, then let your baby decide. She'll unlatch when she has had enough.

    Re: Amount of milk one month old drinks

    actually it may not be that helpful to compare because each baby is different and for the same baby, there can also be daily and other temporal fluctuations. if yr baby is breastfed, the more impt thing is to watch his cues and go along with it. make sure that his crying is really for milk and not due to some other reason. some babies will gain a lot of weight and chubbiness but not grow so much in terms of height. other babies the same age may use the nutrients more for growing in height but not so much in girth. but a few months later, their growth pattern will switch over, and compensate the lack of growth in either weight or height in the previous months. dont't watch for week-by-week pattern but look at more of the overall growth over a quarter of a year. =)
