How many calories in formula?

How many calories in formula?

How much should my baby be eating? How many calories in HiPP formula? What are Holle formula calories per ounce?

These questions are on many parents' minds, especially when baby seems to be eating a little less or more than expected.

How many calories should a baby have?

The amount of calories a baby needs varies greatly depending on their age and if solid food has been incorporated into your littles diet. Keep in mind that all babies go through developmental stages at different rates.

We will use the suggested average caloric intake for our purposes. For babies aged 0-1 it is approximately 90-120 calories per kg in body weight.

Pounds to Kilograms

In the United States we often see weight in terms of pounds; however at the doctor’s office they will also record your baby’s weight in kilograms (kg).

The most common reason for this change is that drug/medication weights are packaged, sold, and calculated in kilograms. So, it only makes sense that your doctor weighs your little one in kg and not in lbs.

The Math

For example, a newborn baby weighing 7 lbs. x .45 = 3.15 kg.

To find the amount of calories your baby needs all you have to do is multiply your baby's body weight times the approximate calories needed per kg in body weight

For example, if your baby weighs 3.15 kg x 100 kcal/kg needs 315 kcal a day.

The Scoop on European Baby Formula

  • 3 oz of water and 3 scoops of European baby formula mixed together equals about 3.2 or 3.3 oz of liquid, close to 100 ml of formula.
  • One 3 oz bottle will equal somewhere between 65 and 70 kcal.

By these numbers we see that a newborn baby weighing 7 lbs will need around 6 bottles in a 24 hour period to meet the daily requirements of calories for the day.

As your baby grows, so will their appetites. Their increase in eating will help you gauge when more calories are needed.

With each of these stages, it is just a matter of recalculating the needed calories.

Here is an example:

  • Your 5 month old weighs 16 lbs. 16 lbs x .45 kg = 7.2 kg
  • A 7.2 kg baby should be getting 7.2kg x 100kcal/kg/day = 720 kcal/day
  • 720 kcal per day / 69kcal per100ml = 10.4 x 100 ml = 1040 ml/day
  • 1040 ml per day / 29.5ml per oz = 35.25 or 35 oz/day
  • 35 oz per day / 6oz per bottle = about 6 bottles a day

Calories Don’t Always Count

Unless you have a medical reason to count the exact calories your little one gets in one day, then it is not really necessary.

Rather than counting calories or measuring out portion sizes, it is more important to let baby take the lead. Fortunately, once you get into a rhythm and become familiar with your infants' feeding habits, it will become second nature.

Not to worry, babies will let you know when they are ready to eat. Just follow the clues:

Your little one may become fidgety or restless

  • They may open their little mouth and turn their head towards you
  • They may start to suck their fingers, or sometimes even their whole fist
  • Crying is a good indicator, especially in newborns

Here we have included a general idea of the number of baby bottles a baby will take during the day. As your baby gets older and begins to get calories from other foods the average number of feeding per day will decrease.

All Calories Are Not Equal

My Organic Company knows that not every calorie is created equal. That is why we only offer 100% organic European baby formulas.

Held to a higher standard than U.S. baby formulas, European baby formulas will never have hidden corn syrup, glucose syrup solids, or sugar.

You can feel confident knowing that your baby is getting the nutrition they deserve, no calorie counting necessary.
