Hello I have a two month old baby boy who weight 12 pounds 6 oz. he drinks 5 oz of formula every three hours. But lately he has been wanting to eat at two hours. I think I might have to start feeding him 6 oz so he can hold off for a little while. Am I iver feeding him or his weight normal for his age ?

And just so my Concoius is clear.. by oats n rice. I mean the specially formulated Gerber kind which is extremely fine ground. And only about 1 tsp for every 8oz or so... Or he may get a reaction. ;)

At 2 mos u can start to add oatmeal or rice to bottles ..ask ur dr. But by time me were 3 mos they had Gerber oats n stuff n their formula to thicken it up....baby sounds like he's healthy n growing..my 3 yr old. List turned 3 2 weeks ago and he's 55 lbs. As long as the baby's active hell grow out of it...but deff. Ask ur dr. Ab the adding of oatmeal ect.

Your baby is not overweight. Baby's can have growth spurts at any time and their feeding will change due to that. Is he still wanting more after the 5 oz are gone or is he content? If he is content after the 5oz I would stick with that and feed more often. If he starts to spit up or push the bottle away you know it's too much.

You can get the Same brand formila It wont taste any different so he should Do well on It .It is just heavier so it will sustain Im longer and u might get a Bit if a break instead if feeding him soo often. It will stop u having to ween him early x

No u can give him cool boiled water from 1mnt old Not loads.
You can give him 2 oz of water but at 2mnts he is suppossed to be having 6 oz Feeds up to 6 times a day but every baby is different. I wouldnt be worried have u tried hungery baby formla might help sustain him abit longer

Hello he was born 7 pounds 8 oz. He gets about 30 oz a day. The next growth spirt I think isn't until four months of age. I don't give him anything other then formula because he is to young.
