ACTUALLY ma'am, 4 - 4 1/2 ounces IS what he/ she should be eating, and no its not because thebaby is still hungry, it's a lot to do with the way the baby is handling the baby food, he/she could be colicky, gassy, and such. My son is 6 months old, and eating 4 1/2 every 3 hours, i used to feed him 6 oz, BUT I was directed by 3 doctors that it was way too much for hisbelly size. ANYWAYS, also, a herniated belly button has nothing to do with parenting, my son has a herniated belly button, it's from the muscle in the belly not closing up after the umbilical cord heals. And if i was her, i wouldn't allow her in the room either, she is doing all the right things. Breathe.View Thread
