my baby is 2 months 2 weeks and weighs 14lbs which is almost twice her birthweight.
she eats around 5 1/2ozs every 2 n 1/2 hours and the doc said I was overfeeding her and i had to strech her feedings to 4 hours apart.
This is easier said than done when she is screaming for food and when I make her wait by the time I feed her I can hear that little tummy growling.
A few weeks ago she spent the night at my mother-in-laws and (without my permission) she was adding a quater cup of pablum to 3 bottles a day (6oz of forumla) and I am wondering if maybe this streched her stomuch or something because she is insatiable now!
She fits tummy wise in 6months clothes but not length wise it is too long...she is a little chub bucket!
any ideas? Is this normal? should I feed her when she wants it and not wait like the doctor said?
I don't know what to do because ever 2 n 1/2 hours seems crazy to me (even at night)
any help is appericated :)
