3 Month Old Baby Milk Intake
More or less: I push for 2.5-3 hours during the day and 4-5 hr at night. If you make a gradual change this can happen and you will both do well.After the kid reaches 10 lb, she may sleep 5-7 hrs.This is often aided if she is fed as she wakens rather than as she tires and is ready for sleep.

Normal variation: The main agent adding color to the poo is the material made by the liver called bile. It starts out a dark green and goes thru the yellows to brown depending on the influences of various factors in the intestines. Rapid transit thru the system, as may occur with diarrhea or breast feeding may have a greenish yellow or yellow appearance. The slower, more likely browner. ...Read more
Spit up versus vomit: Quite normal for many babies to spit up small amounts of milk/formula after feeding. Should be white & not green which could be sign of intestinal obstruction.

Only liquid food: A 3-month old baby eats only liquid food, called breast milk. If for some reason, the mother cannot produce breast milk, she can feed the baby a liquid food called baby formula.

My 7 month baby is formula fed, how much milk should she be having now? She eats 3 meals per day consisting of cereal fruit & vegetables.
24-36 oz: Before babies are taking solids a simple rule of thumb is: offer 2.5 ounces of formula per pound of body weight each day. Once taking solids, it can be harder to judge but most 8 month old's are drinking about 4 to 5, 6 ounce bottles a day: some more, some less. Offer only formula or water and let hunger be her guide. If she is growing well, has frequent wet diapers--perfect! if questions; ask! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can my 5 mo old baby eat food and drink water? Sometimes i'm worried about her feeding, she is on formula 4/5 oz every 3 hours
