Question: my baby is now 2months 10 days old....
she was 4.6 whn she completed her 2 month
she looks thin I want her to gain weight more...
Answer: On average, a newborn drinks about 1.5-3 ounces (45-90 milliliters) every 2-3 hours. This amount increases as your baby grows and is able to take more at each feeding. At about 2 months, your baby may be taking 4-5 ounces (120-150 milliliters) at each feeding and the feedings may be every 3-4 hours.
Until baby won't get into solid food it will be tough to see drastic change in her health but feeding every 3 hrs will be advisable
