How much & how often do your 3 week old kids eat? (Bottle kids.)
Thanks in advance.
My 3 week-old kids get free choice milk in lambars that I replenish twice a day (Deccox-M is included in the PM milk).
If I am bottle feeding not the lambar a 3 wk old is getting 20 oz coke bottle full 3 times a day also us decox-m once a day. On the lambar it is pretty much free choice 2 to 3 times a day.
Thanks!!! I am tired of feeding Milo 4 times a day so he's getting switched to 3x. lol.
My 3 wk olds were eating twice a day, all they could eat. I think they do better/grow faster on 3x/day but it didn't work with my schedule so they got it twice and did fine.
That is why I had Milo on 4x a day for so long. He has grown so much. He's getting too heavy to lift over the fence now. And he's not fat, he's just growing! Lol. I can do the 3x a day. I was just getting sick of 4x a day. lol
Thanks for replying.
I'm with Beth there, I can't take 'em to work for that long (the newness has worn off, HA!) so they got to all they can eat 2x a day.. hasn't hurt growth here at all.
