Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
In general, babies aged 2 months should get 120-150 mL of milk every 3-4 hours. But of course this number is only a general benchmark, the baby's milk needs must still be adjusted to his weight. Because your baby has a low birth weight, you should always discuss with his child's doctor how much milk should be given and whether your child needs special types of milk.
In addition, it must be further known also the causes of dehydration in your child. In general, children can suffer from dehydration when there is a lot of fluid coming out (for example, children vomit or loose stools) or incoming fluid is very less. You should discuss again with the pediatrician who treats your child in the hospital whether your child does have certain diseases that cause recurring dehydration. If indeed the child does not have certain diseases, then the provision of drinking to children must be corrected. The child's weight gain must always be monitored, the amount of urine and bowel movements must also be considered, and the amount of milk must be adjusted to the child's current weight. If your child has difficulty drinking milk, here are some things you can try to do:
Give milk when the child just wakes up so that the child does not fall asleep while drinking milk and can drink more
Make sure you make the right amount of milk according to the instructions on the packaging of formula milk
Make sure you make formula milk with water that is guaranteed to be clean
Adjust milk temperature to the child's preference
Pay attention to the hole in the child's teat bottle, adjust the size of the hole with the child's ability to drink (do not give the hole too small if the child has begun to drink strongly because it will make the milk enter longer and the child is frustrated when sucking milk)
Give milk in a place free from distraction (in a room that is quite dim and quiet, not many toys, etc.)
If indeed the child's weight does not rise well, the amount of urination and defecation of the child is lacking, you should consult your child to the pediatrician immediately.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
