How often do you feed newborn baby?
Every 4 to 6 hours. They will eat normally 2 to 3 oz. of formula or beast milk if breast feeding. Some newborns eat every 2 to 4 hrs. Your baby will let you know also when he or she is hungry.Hope this helps. congratz on your new bundle of joy!! Its a wonderful thing. I have 3 of my own.

There is no magic number for how often a newborn should be fed, but on average, breast- and bottle-fed babies are fed every 2-3 hours or so. The two main goals of feeding are …to replace the fluids that the baby loses throughout the day (in urine, sweat, etc.) and to provide them with enough calories so that they grow adequately. Some reference numbers might help: . Breast milk and formulas have about 20 calories per ounce . "Growing adequately" means gaining 20 grams of weight per day . To grow 20 grams a day requires about 100 calories per kilogram of infant weight per day . So for example, a 4-kilogram (9-pound) baby should be getting about 400 calories each day. If there are 20 calories in each ounce of breast milk, then that baby needs 400 / 20 = 20 ounces of formula each day to gain adequate weight. Generally this is split up into 6-10 feeds each day, meaning that feeds happen every 2-3 hours, and at each feed, the baby is consuming about 2-3 ounces.
You can get a milk replacement from the feed stores that is used for kittens.
A newborn mouse must be fed every two hours until it is weaned without fail or it will have health problems and may die. Newborn mice, or pinkies as they are commonly called…, are difficult to care for and not for beginners. If you would like a baby mouse, get one that is already weaned, commonly called a hopper . Here is an excellent video on feeding baby mice. Note that the mouse in the video is already nine days old, and is no longer a pinkie (newborn) but a fuzzy (essentially a toddler). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4_mFLcLBio
^^ well you can only feed it twice a day and by giving it healthy food not junks like sweets or lettuce if you give lettuce to your Bunnie it will get diarrhea and it will… get sick You don't feed a newborn rabbit anything unless it has been orphaned. The mother will take care of it. If you have an orphan you should feed it 4 times a day. You should feed it kitten replacer and don't forget to stimulate it so that it goes to the bathroom. Why are you feeding a newborn baby rabbit?? Is it orphaned? A mother rabbit feeds her babies once or twice a day. If you are attempting to feed an orphaned baby on a bottle you will need to feed it 3 or 4 times a day (space out evenly). Don't forget the other MAMA duties. Stimulate the baby rabbit to urinate by rubbing it's genitalia GENTLY with a warm water dipped cotton ball. The mother rabbit does this until the baby is able to remember to do this itself at about 10 days to 2 weeks of age.
I would suggest fine corn meal. Another solution would be to grind down regular chicken feed into a finer crumble using a food processor. Make sure they have fresh clean water… on hand. If they are real "new" like day old then they need what is called a chick starter which has been medicated to reduce the chances of intestinal ailments. This comes in a very fine crumble easily digestible for chicks. Chicks newly emerged from the shell will appear sick, they stumble around, sit pitifully cheeping like the world is ending and they can look bedraggled and to the novice (sick) They may not be. It takes time for matted vestigial feathers to dry out and fluff up. They will take hesitant leaps and stumbles literally tripping over their own clumsy feet. Keep them in a very warm area, keep in mind they just emerged from a shell kept at a constant 100F so they need a minimum of 90F for the first few hours, even days. If, after the first few days they do not seem to be eating then get a water soluble Tonic from the place you buy your chicken feed and add it to the water dish.
Here is a recipe that works for all wild birds. Supplies: 1. A Spoon 2. A Blender or Chopper 3. Dog or Cat food with a Protein Percentage of at least 20% 4. One Hard Boile…d Egg 5. Water Step 1 : Put about 1 Cup of dog or cat food into the blender or chopper. Blend until it is the consistency of sand. Step 2: Mix the hard boiled egg in with the dog or cat food and blend until smooth. Step 3: Add about 1/2 cup of water, or until the mix looks like thin oatmeal. Step 4: Mix with spoon. Step 5: Refrigerate, but serve at room temperature. When you are ready to feed, scoop some onto a toothpick or into a syringe. Gently drop into baby birds moth when it opens it. Don't force it to open its mouth unless it has gone without food for several hours. You do not need to give the bird any water. It will get all of its water from the food. *** It is illegal to keep a wild bird in captivity if it is a native species. Birds that did not originate in the US you may keep (Sparrows, Starlings). If you may not keep it, call your local vet. They will tell you who to call so it can be released into the wild. Also do not be afraid to put the little bird back in its nest. Birds have no sense of smell so they cannot smell you on the baby. (Vultures are the only birds that can smell.) ***
From the age of 2-6 months, usually about 2-3 ounces every two hours :] I have two little brothers, one six months, which is how i know. Before two months and after six months… i dont know though :]
Once every two or three hours, just like any baby mammal.
I raised a baby mocking bird and my research found that small pieces of bread soaked in milk was the best. It worked great!
I'm feeding mine dog food mixed with water and, yes gross but spit in it because they need the enzymes.
