As a baby you can feed 2 pinkies a week but when he gets to taking small mice cut back to 1 mouse a week and stay on 1 feeder per week until full grown. Power feeding to get a larger snake quickly is as all have said harmful to your snake especially if your intention is breeding. A breeder must be usually 3 years old for a female (redtail) and 2 years for a male (again a redtail).
I have a baby children's python (Nikki's) that I am feeding 2 new born pinkies a week to and she is growing slowly, once she progresses up to hoppers I will cut down to 1 a week. A baby children's python eats 1 day old pinkies (remember, pinkies must be no bigger than the fattest part of your snake) !!
