How much breast milk or formula milk does 1 week old baby drink?
the size of baby tummy :
day 1 - can hold around 10ml
day 3 - can hold around 25ml
day 10 - can hold around 45 - 60ml
this was adapt from thomson medical breastfeeding book
my boy took around 30ml around 1 week. because i pump and feed when he turn 1 week plus
so i you realise yr baby finish what you gave him, try to give him slightly more the next feed , if he finishes it you will know he needs more for further feeds. they will reject if they are full
My gal can take 95 ml when she's 6 days old! Told by Thomson Medical Center nurse when she went in for juandice... She can finish 100ml ebm now at 2 weeks old... She's a milk monster ><
