Can you mix hungry baby with formula?
Mixing will mean having 2 tins of milk powder open at the same time. The powder is no longer sterile once the tin is opened so it is important to use the formula within a reasonably short time. For this reason it would be best to use the normal formula up and then switch to the hungry baby formula completely.
Can you overfeed a newborn?
While it is certainly possible to overfeed a baby, most infant nutrition experts agree that it is fairly uncommon. As we noted earlier, babies are innately capable of self-regulating their intake; they eat when they’re hungry and stop when they’re full.

Can my baby be hungry every hour?
Babies grow and develop so much that they double their weight in the first 5 months of life. All this growing is exhausting and takes a lot of energy. Babies also need to feed every few hours or so because their tiny tummies can’t hold very much at a time.
Does spit up mean baby is full?
Normally, a muscle between the esophagus and the stomach (lower esophageal sphincter) keeps stomach contents where they belong. Until this muscle has time to mature, spitting up might be an issue — especially if your baby is relatively full.
How many Oz does a 4 day old need?
General Guidelines for Baby Feeding:
Most newborns eat every 2 to 3 hours, or 8 to 12 times every 24 hours. Babies might only take in half ounce per feeding for the first day or two of life, but after that will usually drink 1 to 2 ounces at each feeding. This amount increases to 2 to 3 ounces by 2 weeks of age.
