The newborn feeding guide from Enfamil will help you understand the amount you should feed your baby, though it can vary depending on your individual baby's needs. Your baby will typically turn away from the breast or bottle when they are no longer hungry. This is only a guide. Visit enfamil.ca for more information
Signs your baby is hungry
- Moves head from side to side
- Opening their mouths
- Sticking out their tongues
• Breast milk
• Infant formula, cow's milk based
Look for an infant formula containing about 11.5 mg/100 mL of Docosahexaenoic Acid (0.32% DHA).
This will help ensure your baby is getting a DHA level similar to the average level in worldwide breast milk.*
415-1035 mL/day (5-10 feedings/day)
Liquid* Average level of DHA and ARA in worldwide breast milk is 0.32% and 0.47% (mean ± standard deviation of total fatty acids) based on an analysis of 65 studies of 2,474 women).
