Is My Baby Getting Enough?


Between months 0-4 your baby should be gaining about 170grams per week which translates roughly as about 1 ounce per day.


However , There are other ways to gauge a baby's intake other than just observing a baby's weight.A baby who is getting enough milk will have plenty of wet and dirty nappies .


Day 1–1 bowel movement and 1 wet nappy

Day 2–3 bowel movements and 2 wet nappies

Day 3–3 bowel movements and 3 wet nappies

Day 4 3-4 bowel movements (changing to green/yellow) 6 wet nappies

Day 5 3-5 yellow bowel movements the size of a euro coin or more and 6 wet nappies A wet nappy is about the equivalent of 3 tablespoons of water poured into a dry nappy.
