How much?

Hi

My twins are 16 days old and im feeding them on Aptimil 1. They are currently having 4oz every 3 hours. They are now taking the full feed and we think they still maybe hungry as they dont seem settled? Should i increase to 5oz even though on the pack this feeds a 10.5lb baby every 5 hours? If so when do u think they will need feeding again every 3,4 or 5 hours? Our babies weights are approx. 5 and a half and 6lb. Any advice much needed - thanks xx

I'd ignore what it says on the packaging regarding what your babies should be taking and go along with what your babies and your instincts
tell you.
As for how often they will feed if they take more - again, they will tell you :smile: but i suspect it wouldn't be much longer than they already do, every three hours is good at their age.

Hi there,

I hope you don't mind me gatecrashing your thread but I was wondering how much as well. Isobel will be a month old on Tuesday) and she can have from 2-4oz every feed. She is a bit of a sicky baby although it is getting a lot better so I am trying to burp her more often but then what happens is that she falls asleep and can't get her to feed again, this doesn't happen all the time just sometimes.

She is putting on weight so I don't suppose I should worry too much?
