Infant Care (up to 18 months old) Board Index

My son is two week old and he was 10 lbs 14 oz when he was born (thank god by scheduled csection)
He had trouble with rapid breathing at birth and spent a week in the NICU where he had to learn to eat and breathe and was on an IV in the beginning because he was taking very little formula. After about a week he was up to 2-3 oz at a time (about four hours between feedings). He's now up to about 3-3.5 oz per feeding about every four hours. He is down to 10 lbs 2 oz and has stopped losing ,but the nurse said he should be gaining about an oz per day so I should try to get him to eat more like 4 oz at a time. He rarely takes four oz. I hope he gains. has anyone else had a large baby and if so how much were they eating at two weeks?
