help all new to me

Postby Broody29 » Thu Oct 22, 2015 8:52 am

Hi ladies, I have a 3 week old baby girl. I started her on aptamil first milk but changed to the hungry milk last week as I couldn't satisfy her hunger. Since then she is a little more settled but wouldn't always finish the 4 Oz and then comes back for more 2 hours later. I don't know weather to change formula altogether and go for something like cow and gate?

Hi there im not much help but think you have to give them a while on new formula to see if its working. Pop over to the september train girls there might be better able to answer. My little one of 5wks wont take more than 2oz at a go!

Broody29 Aptamil & Cow&Gate are pretty much same formula so wouldn't make a difference. SMA is the heaviest formula. Hungry milk can be very hard on their tummies, we used it for while but came back off as he was drinking same amounts.
They can go through growth spurts where they drink loads. Our lo was drinking 7oz every 2hrs at 5 weeks (due to reflux).
Every 2 hrs is normal for newborns, their tummies are tiny. Lo is 16 weeks & still only goes 3 & half hours most feeds.
