My 6 week old son is primarily breastfed. He will occasionally get a bottle of breast milk if I am away from him.
It's really difficult to figure out how much he should be getting/does get per feeding.
I've read that for the number of feedings he has per day and his weight, he should only be getting about 2-2.5 oz. I'm not sure if this matters, but he was 9 lbs. 9 oz. at birth and is about 12 pounds now.
When he has had a bottle of breast milk, it doesn't seem that 2-2.5 oz. is enough for him. He can typically drink about 4 oz. Then it makes me wonder if he's drinking the entire 4 oz. because it's there and available to him. My husband said he doesn't seem content after only 2-2.5 oz.
I know that sometimes babies will spit up if they drink too much milk, but my son has reflux (he's on medication), and he spits up frequently anyways. I can't tell if he spits up just because or if he eats too much.
Does 4 oz. seem about right for a 6 week old?
