I have heard that it's not possible, but I disagree. I think it is possible to overfeed a baby. I say this because Eliana went through a phase where she would eat more if we offered it when she didn't need it.

She would then spit up the rest of it. This was after she had stopped spitting up for the most part, so this was concerning to me. We cut back on the amount of formula we gave her, and she was fine.

I think you can also force feed your baby-- and end up feeding your baby too much. Use your instincts as a mom.

For the most part, babies eat what they need. Other than that, rely on your instincts.
