Good to know

Infant stomach capacity. A day old baby only has a 5-7 ml stomach capacity, or the size of a marble.  The amount of colostrum that comes out from the mother’s breast is enough to satisfy the baby.  The stomach becomes the size of a shooter marble by day 3.  After a week, the stomach capacity reaches 2 oz, or the size of a ping pong ball.
