Sounds too much: For a 7-wk-old infant of average weight for age should take 4-5 ounces every 4 hours.

Mgt/workup: A typical feeding schedule is every 2 to 4 hours. Babies develop their own pattern, but the amount is usually 3-4 oz per feed. Your physician will follow her growth and development. There should not be vomiting following a feeding. Burping the baby half way through the feeding and at the end of the feed helps with digestion.
