My daughter is a week old today. i am breast feeding, she sleeps so well during the day, her last feed of a night, then she is restless all through the night.. Iam unsure of how much milk she would be getting. Iam expressing after every feed to see how much is there. Someone did tell me a newborn baby should be having 60mls??
Example: Last night she had a breastfeed, i did express. 80 mls in one and 60mls in the other. 2 hours after feeding her she was still hungry, she had the whole 80mls in the bottle. 2am came and still very unsettled she drank the other 60mls, burped and seemed fine after that and slept until 415am.
Iam guessing 60mls isnt enough for a new born??
If any one can shed some light on this and give me some advice or tell me how much a newborn should be getting, much appreciated
