Answer by LovelyWarden
I used a chart for, oh let’s say….a DAY! Believe me, they get old fast once you realize you do not have the time to fill in a chart. But if you really must, I got mine from the “Baby Book” we have for our daughter, it’s just one of those books you fill in with each single weird baby detail :)

Try not to be to serious about these charts. The ideal way to know is to observe your child. Feed him/her when he/she is hungry, and not exactly 3 hours apart (babies have great lungs to cry with when they are hungry), and make sure that you are getting output (wet diapers).

CAN YOU REALLY OVER FEED A NEWBORN? http://birthpolicy.org/328/can-you-really-over-feed-a-newborn/ http://birthpolicy.org/328/can-you-really-over-feed-a-newborn/#comments Wed, 10 Nov 2010 18:47:36 +0000 admin http://birthpolicy.org/328/can-you-really-over-feed-a-newborn/ Question by Bella:
Can you really over feed a newborn?

My newborn (1 mo old) at first was underfed, and now the physician states he is overfed if he is consuming 5oz at a feeding. However, on the growth charts my baby is slow. He is just now 9 pounds at 1 month old. The physician stated to fed him sterilized water if he wants more food. But he seems hungry and can keep down 5oz when he wants it. His feedings can range from 2.5oz to 5oz with supplemental nursing.

I would definitely check with another pediatrician, I think with newborns its the same rule as you cannot spoil, you cannot overfeed. This is their “thrive to live” time. I EBF so I have no idea how much my LO ate, but she doubled her birth weight by 6weeks, and has since tripled it by 6months, and yes she is a tiny bigger, she is also taller (the size of a 12-18month) and I fed on demand.

I really do not think you can overfeed a baby, they are very persistent on likes/dislikes and hungry and full.

Anyone know of a site where I can find an infant feeding chart by month?

I had found a couple of charts for the amount of solids you should feed your baby by month. They were from a children’s hospital. But now I cant find them! Anyone know of a good one?
