Each baby’s nutritional needs are different and change overtime. Your baby is probably getting enough formula if he or she:

  • Acts satisfied after each feeding.
  • Gains weight constantly after the first 3 to 7 days after birth. Your baby may lose a little weight during the first week after being born.
  • Has about 6 to 8 wet diapers a day.
  • Has about 2 to 5 or more stools a day at first, and then has 2 or less stools a day as your baby grows. Your baby’s stools will be runny at first.
