    My babes was drinking 3 oz every 3 hours.. I stuck to it for the most part but my doctor confirmed they will let you know if they want more! :)

    My Dr told me 1-2 oz per feeding at about 2 weeks, but whatever baby wants as they say you can’t over feed a baby, they know when to stop.

    With paced feeding. If bottle feeding breast milk you need to pace feed.

    I'm not sure how to explain it. You can find a video on YouTube.

    I would offer 2oz of formula to a 2wk old, if im breastfeeding I would let them feed for as long as they wanted, usually 15 min per side. When they go through growth spurts they will nurse longer, this also tells your body to produce more milk as your baby eats more.
