  1. 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).

    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.
     
  6. 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.
