They need to drink lots of milk and fluid to stop them from getting dehydrated so that's why I would give them a drink every 2 hours. I also decided to give them food every 4 hours to stop them from getting hungry. I choose to use Heinz baby food because its one of the most popular foods which is used for the babies at that age.
