Volumes & Weight

How much milk can your baby's stomach hold and process in a healthy manner at each feed is something that all parents need to know, and this short booklet provides you the basic volumes to feed your baby from 0-12 months.

Be guided by biology, nurture healthy gains with health amounts

Many parents are taught to follow the amounts on formula cans, which are not regulated nor are they governed by biology. Breastfeeding parents are often told, "that babies have a small stomach, so you need to feed them often" but this too doesn't align with how the digestive system of a newborn functions.
To avoid and remedy one of the causes of Digestive Overload, namely overfeeding (one of the real cause of colic, reflux, silent reflux, lactose and dairy overload, the witching hour and some cases of CMPA) we need to nurture our newborns with their natural digestive capacities and capabilities.

overfeeding can cause

Reflux and colic, or what I call Digestive Overload, the cause of these symptoms.

Speed up food transition times which can place organs unnecessarily under pressure, contributing to unsettled symptoms.

An increase of hydrochloric acid in the stomach as the body tries to digest an overabundant amount of milk, and this can then result in an acid inhibitor being prescribed, again, unnecessarily.

Abdominal distention, whereby the stomach is ballooned outward, beyond the girth of the waist and stomach placing pressure on the skin and organs.

Early linear growth – if the child is growing along the 50th percentile for height and 90th for weight that is a concern.

A higher likelihood of developing ‘non-communicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age.

A higher mortality rate in adulthood – long-term epidemiological studies have found childhood obesity to be associated with 50-80% higher mortality in adulthood, predominantly related to cardiovascular disease.

This information changed the whole dynamic of what we did! It was the best thing that happened to us, after we really had given up hope! I can genuinely say that my depression and panic came from the hospital staff and my health visitor! Purely filled my head with false information and frightened me into overfeeding my baby in order to gain weight!
