Fun Facts Friday

Is eating your baby's favorite thing to do?

For the first few weeks it might seem as if you're feeding you newborn infant around the clock. This endless hunger has as much to do with your baby's hungry tummy as it does for your ability to meet supply & demand. These frequent feedings will increase your milk supply in order to meet your baby's growing appetite. Babies that are breast-fed babies tend to eat more frequently, because breast milk is more easily digested and more completely absorbed than formula. Your baby has a lot of growing to do and this feeding frenzy will give them the huge caloric intake they need. You can expect that your baby will double their birth weight in the first six of month of life. You may also notice your baby's appetite become particularly ravenous during growth spurts; the first usually happens between 4 to 6 weeks of age.
