NO the dr said to mix 1/2 teaspoon not 1 whole teaspoon into an oz of breastmilk.
They are trying to fatten the baby up because he is so "small" though he seems great but hes in the less than one percentile and all that. And he keeps going further down on the growth chart. from 40th to .95
This is just to give him more calories. As for him having so much "they say he seems satisfied" My husband and all. And I have heard from quite a few people that their babies took alot. He used to do less but him being on the small side I will feed him what ever just so he doesnt get bad off.
Thanks Ladies. He is meeting all of his milestones and is happy and looks great.ITs jsut that damned chart they have..LOL
He is growing in height and head circumference. For example he is 5 1/2 months old. 24 anda quarter long and only weights 12 lbs 7.2 oz This is only 4.1 ox in 9 days, so they are concerned because that isnt even half an ounce a day...And you know the little tyke had a great diaper for his father today because of the mixing I bet, and he has gone almost 4 hours inbetween bottles usually its 3 This concernes me because if he doesnt take that other bottle untill 4 i get home at 5 i guess i can pump a few times inbetween but ???
