Dd is on enfamil newborn. We have her nursettes in hospital and bought 2 six packs of them. She's eating a little more than 2 oz and is wasting second bottle. We switched to the same stuff but powder and she's eat SO much less, give her a nursettes and she eats like a pig? What's the difference? I don't wanna have to go out and buy the ready to eat since its so expensive but wil if I hVe too

That is a lot for a 3day old.
newbs can't self regulate and will just suck down until there's nothing left. They also comfort suck. Since you can't bf I'd consider a paci for comfort s*****g  so she doesn't stretch her tummy out too much


I thought so too! Drs didn't seem to concerned though..

Quoting Crimson Chin:
Can you take a bit out of the second bottle, put it in the first bottle and refrigerate the rest? You can do that with the ready made over here, as long as they haven't  drank from that bottle. Is that an option? I think it lasts 48 hours in the fridge once opened, though some are only 24 hours. 
I don't believe the stomach size chart picture things. All babies are different sizes and therefore so are their stomachs. My last baby was on a strict 70ml every 3 hours from 2 days old. 


Not the nursettes , says only good for one hour after opening do not refrigerate. The ready made I believe should be good for 24 hours in fridge tho? I'm going to market today to buy some

Quoting Crimson Chin:

It usually is yeah. I wasn't really sure what a nursette was. We have the tiny bottles here with teats you attach to them, but they're 3oz I think. I know they used them in NICU when they ran out of his breast milk. But they didn't care about using a tiny bit then throwing it because they just wanted him to eat. We weren't paying for them either so I never looked into it. But yeah, you can definitely refrigerate the ready made bottles.  


Yea nursettes are the ones given at hospital, 2oz ones.
