Re: Baby' s overweight - what to do

Hi Doc,

Thanks for the advice. How much formula should I be feeding her though (clearly I' m feeding her too much) and if I switch to the hungry baby formula should I feed her less?

It will be very difficult to get her to take less formula although the hungry bay formualas are a good idea eg Novalac for hungry babies or simply Lactogen2. As far as her diet is concerned the advice of a trained dietician would be the best way forward.
