The average weight or a baby of 8 weeks is 5.4kg. Even allowing for the fact that your baby started off life with his weight below the average, he should still have gained more weight by now. If he is taking about 8 feeds of 30ml each he is only getting 240ml of formula per day. His current requirements at his present weight is about 580ml to 600ml per day. There must be some problem causing him not to take sufficient formula. Perhaps the present formula is making him feel full too soon.What did the clinic sister suggest that you should do?
