OK I am without the scale and have been for over 3 weeks now. I usually think I can tell when my babies are full, but sometimes it is hard. I think my bigger twin would just nibble all day long (he loves his paci, too), yesterday he nursed 1.5 hrs after little bro took most of the milk then spent the next half hr+ spitting up.
I read spit up peaks at 4 mos. They are 4 mos in a week/3 mos adjusted. My little guy esp. spits up like crazy but I don't think that means he is overfed, but sometimes I think he is doing it after over-feeding. I just feel like I don't know what I am doing. I don't have the scale so it's hard for me to say if they've had enough, if I am giving enough supplement (they're getting donor milk in a lactation aid/tube at breast) or did I give too much supplement? I put them on breast and put them on and on and they nurse 10-12x/day/ 12 if you count the nursing to sleep for the big afternoon family nap and at bed at night. (12+ really). But they also like to suck, so do I say little guy has had enough if he seemed content for a few minutes after nursing (I read this in womanly art) but sucks on his hand 5 minutes later? Spitting up just means they have weak muscles, right? Not that they got too much? I give them burp breaks but milk always comes up, sometimes quite a bit.
Also, just randomly thrown in there, but if we start solids at 6 mos we can skip purees and just go to sweet potato fries (homemade), etc? Avocado strips? Purees were really just invented because people started pre-6 mo?
