# How To Calculate Feeding Rate

It’s important to know how to calculate your baby’s feeding rate so that you can make sure they’re getting the right amount of food. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Determine the amount of formula or breast milk your baby will need per feeding. This will depend on their age weight and appetite.

2. Divide that number by the number of feedings your baby will have in a day.

3. Find out how much time your baby spends feeding. This can vary but is usually between 20 and 30 minutes.

4. Calculate the rate by multiplying the number of minutes your baby spends feeding by the number of feedings per day.

Here’s an example:

If your baby will need 6 ounces of formula per feeding and they will have 8 feedings per day you would divide 6 by 8 to get 0.75. If your baby spends 25 minutes per feeding you would multiply 0.75 by 25 to get 18.75. This means your baby’s feeding rate would be 18.75 ounces per day.

Of course every baby is different so it’s important to talk to your pediatrician about how much formula or breast milk your baby needs. They can help you determine the best feeding schedule and rate for your little one.
