Re: how much should a 5 week old eat
Your baby is going to eat as much as they want at each feeding. They know how hungry they are, and sometimes they throw us a curve ball and rapidly increase or decrease their food intake. Between sudden growth spurts and spells of not feeling well, sometimes it is hard to know how much a baby will eat at one time. DS ate 5 oz every 1.5 hours a few weeks ago, now he's down to 2-3 every 1.5 hours, but he weighs 16lbs and is 10 weeks old, so trust your baby to know how much they want to eat.
