Typically.. at any age, you can tell if a baby is eating enough by how content or un-content they are.. for instance, if post feeding, via bottle or nursing they still act fussy, cry or want for more.. chances are they need more! Another way we tell when Monroe needs his feedings increased is by how long in between feedings he goes.. when it starts to get shorter and shorter.. and he isn't content or full for as long in between, then we know we need to "bump him up" an ounce or half an ounce. Overall, you should know if your baby is hungry.. happy babies aren't wanting for more.. unhappy babies are!
