Quoting I have a princess:" They had my son on every 3 hour feeding schedule. lastnight they pulled his feeding tube. today the dr ... [snip!] ... your son and where he is.. my guess is by this time next week he should have this wrapped up and ready to be out of here ""
They kept my LO on a 3 hour feeding schedule until she came home. Then she was kept on that (via her Dr's suggestion) until she hit 12lbs which was around 6 months old. The minimum we wanted I think was 52ml (it was 2 years ago so that is a guess). If she took less then that we had to try to get her to take that much. If we couldn't then we just has to watch carefully. However, we were to wake her up and feed her EVERY 3 hours until she hit 12lbs.
