cry2mucheveryday  Why not 'give foods according to normal caloric requirement'? +7  
hpsbwz  @cry2mucheveryday because feeding to the caloric may be too much or too little for this baby. considering the baby's crying only resolves with food, if you've already reached the limit, are you just not going to feed the baby? that's how i thought of it. "maintain comfort" is the key phrase. +4
