What Is a Newborn Feeding Chart?

A newborn feeding chart visually displays how much a newborn baby eats during the first three months of life. Since these charts are only a general guide, it is normal for newborns to eat a little more or less than the chart's suggested amount.

Some feeding charts include feeding values for up to one year, while some also offer a newborn sleeping schedule. To create specific feeding plans, seek out a pediatrician’s advice. Formula-fed newborns may need a little less to eat because formula takes longer to digest than breast milk. During ages four to six months, most children are ready for pureed food.
