Hello! My son is about 2 months only and weighs 12.5lbs.. He was 7.7 when he was born.. I just took him for his check up and the dr said he was great., a little heavy but nothing to worry about.. now I'm paranoid! I'm reading things online and my son is eating about 5-6 ounces right now.. where as the books and so forth are saying at 2 months it should be between 2-4 ounces!..He eats about every 3-2.5 hours.. at night I can put him to bed around 8 and he will sleep until after 1 at times, eat and go right back to sleep. My husband suggested feeding him a few ounces of water in between bottles on occasion.. only to hold him over if necessary so that I am not feeding him too much! I know that if he is hungry or wants it I cannot deprive him of that.. I just dont want my little chunky monkey to be eating way more than he should, or gain so much weight at such a small age.. I know that all babies are different.. but I feel like 6 ounces..(sometimes wanting more than 7!!) is way too much..
