I'm a new mom to two month old twins my son eats more frequently than my daughter. It seems they've gone from 2oz to 4oz and my son sometimes will eat 6!! My daughter also sometimes in the past week has trouble pooping she's grumpy at night if she hasn't gone til she goes but when she does it isn't hard or even super firm. I was wondering if it could be because she eats too much maybe? I don't know, the lack of sleep and, well everything that comes with being a new parent times two has my brain on E and I worry twice as much

Whatever fills their belly.

My Son started with 50mL when he was born, a few weeks wasn't getting enough, so we upped to 100mL, by 3 months he was on 250mL. He's now 6 months and still on 250mL, he's quite chubby but doctors say he's perfectly healthy the weight he is.

Just feed him as much as he needs to fill his belly, or try feeding him small feeds more frequently.

As for the pooping, not too sure about that one.

I know exactly what it's like to be a new Mum, my first is only 6 months old and I still ask questions, but that's a part of learning.
