Grace It sounds like the little guy is just hungry. Maybe he's going through a growth spurt.

Mumtoboo I agree with Dina !

dinapooh2 I'm sure he's fine. I'd much rather have a baby that eats plenty than one that doesn't eat enough. Jonathan did the same thing. He always ate a lot. The doctor said to give him whatever he wanted until he started spitting it out.

AutumnGirl Could be a growth spurt?? Also, I think boy's tend to eat more than girl's. I wouldn't worry about it too much, it sounds about normal to me!

AWKSMOM I don't see a problem with it. Sounds to me like he's a really good eater!

rchase05 My sisters baby was up to 8 oz by 6 weeks and her doc put her on cereal at 7.5 weeks because she was drinking a quart of formula a day. She was 7 lb at birth and the doc says she is eating fine. I am not sure what she weighs now.

Robyn I can't believe how much Dylan eats! He's eating 6 ounces every 3-4 hours!

I went in and had lunch with my Aunt Karen today at the hospital and we took him up to the newborn nursery and he weighed 13 pounds 6 ounces! He's just 6 weeks old today!

Is 6 ounces a lot to eat for such a little guy? Austin was an eater and he didn't eat NEARLY this amount when he was 6 wks old. He was still working on 4 ounces!!
