From birth until six months, most babies are able to meet all their nutritional needs from formula or breast milk. Breastfed babes may need to nurse eight to 12 times per day, while formula fed babies typically eat six to eight times per day. It sounds like a lot because it is. Luckily as newborn stomachs grow the amount of milk or formula a growing baby takes in increases, while the frequency of feedings decreases.
