Daily Feeding Plan

There’s no rule as to how much food your baby should be eating. Every beautiful little baby is unique and they all have very different tummies. Here’s a daily guide to help you through the stages of feeding. The most important part is to listen to your babies cues as to when they’re hungry and when they’ve had enough.

Please consult your pediatrician or lactation consultant about nursing or providing formula. The list below is only a general chart when it comes to providing milk to your baby and toddlers.

8 to 12 Nursings or 18-24 Oz of Formula (2-3 oz per bottle)

6 to 9 Months_
4 to 5 Nursings or 24-32 oz of Formula (7 oz per bottle)
