Dear Kirsten

Congratulations on your baby girl :o)

It seems that you have a hungry little baby. According to her body weight the daily milk requirement is 950-1000 ml in 6 feeds, equivalent to 160-170 ml at each feed.

Bottle fed babies tend to over-eat, as it is rather easy to get the milk out of the bottle, and they are likely to have a larger milk intake than breast fed babies. I recommend that you offer her a pacifier upon the milk feed in order to satisfy her sucking need.

You may also try to offer her some gruel.

I hope this is helpful and I wish you and your daughter the best of luck :o)

Kind regards,

Helen Hansen
