For the first few weeks, feeding your baby can be a difficult job. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all guide to child nutrition for new parents. Your baby's optimal newborn feeding amount can vary depending on his or her weight, appetite and age. It also depends on whether you're nursing or using formula milk.
If you're uncertain about how much to feed your baby, talk to your doctor or a lactation consultant and use these general guidelines as a starting point.
