Infant Feed Volumes – what is expected?

As you know part of assesses sing an infant is asking about how well it is feeding, especially in Bronchiolitis. However, our paediatric colleagues have noticed that many infants are over fed, and although their intake may have reduced it would still be considered adequate for normal growth.

The tables below give an indication of what a healthy intake is and should be used when assessing how well an infant is feeding.
