Tip: Feeding quantities

I’ve always worried about whether the girls were eating enough for their weight. So for those of you looking to this, we eventually found the answer to the question (confirmed by our pediatricians).

The rule for the daily amount to aim for is the grams the baby weights divided by ten plus 250.

And interesting to know is that what our hospital considers overeating if the baby drinks more than 200ml per kilo.

So, if one of the girls weights 5.780 kg, her recommended amount would be:

578+250=828 ml/day

And the maximum:

5.780*200=1.156 ml/day

Anything in between, on average, is what we aim for.
