I pump and feed by bottle and have since my son was one week old. He was three weeks early but very healthy. He has since grown like a weed, he doubled his weight by 10 weeks. He was 6lbs14oz at birth, he is now 16lbs. His length was 19.5 and is now 24.5.
Okay so is it normal for him to be eating every two hours, even thru the night? He will eat 2-4 ounces at each feeding. This seems like too much according to everything I've read, but he's grown so much so fast I don't want to try and take feedings away from him (he gets very upset if not fed). I don't want to take away the calories if he needs them to continue his non stop growth spurt.
Should I just hang in there a little while longer and see if he slows down on his own? Anyone else have an eating machine?
