I was wondering how much and how often do you feed and new born Bottle Baby.
4-6 oz 4 times a day for 3-4 days then 6-10 oz 3times day for two weeks... increase to about 32-40 oz in two or three feedings a day by 4 weeks...stay with this amount till 8 weeks then start to wean
Offer hay, water and grain at two weeks old look for cud chewing from 4 -8 weeks old you can begin weaning when they are chewing cud
Milk should be at 105 degreesF
yup, that is right.
Depends on the breed. Minis won't get that amount. I also have mine on 2 bottles a day by a week old. They get 2 (16 oz.) bottles each day. One early morning & one late afternoon. Everyone has their own way of feeding & what works for some, does not work for others. Take all the info you get & see what works for you.
