My baby is 19 days old and already drinking five ounces of milk every three to four hours. Is this too much? Does he need to be changed onto hungry baby milk?

Also he suffers a lot with the hiccups, is there anyway of trying to prevent this?

I am guessing you're using powdered milk since you can measure his milk (unless you pump it and feed it through bottle but that won’t be good for breast milk supply). If it's bought milk, please check the recommendation of how much a baby should drink per day for his age. Then write down every time you feed your baby and compare.

Hiccups are normal, means he drank too fast! Nothing to worry about.
