When my son was a baby, his feeding was very regular. He would have a bottle of formula every three hours, and a bit of pumped breast milk, but tiny amounts. He was considered a big boy and fed well.
My daughter's feeding is really confusing however. She gets pumped breastmilk as well. So, I would give her a bottle of 120 ml breast milk, but she would still be showing hunger cues. So, I would give her a 90 ml formula and she would take it all. I assumed that breastmilk was easily digested or something. But then at night, she would have back to back formula bottles? I've never seen my son have back to back bottles like that.
Yesterday, we took her to the pediatrician because she is very unsettled through the night and keeps moaning and grunting. And the doctor said that it's probably because we are overfeeding her! I didn't even realise you can overfeed a baby lol. I mean, she's giving me hunger cues (hand sucking etc) and when I offer the extra milk she takes it? Why would she take it if she doesn't want it? Can anyone advice me on this. I definitely don't want to overfeed her. How can I know when her hunger is real?
