My 6.5 week old is still hungry after a 4 oz. bottle so we started giving him 6 oz. The doctor told us that was too much for a 6.5 week old...and told us to go back to 4 oz. (but he felt 4 oz was still a lot for a 6.5 week old) and just feed him more often. When he was born he weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. and he currently weighs 11 lbs. 12 oz. Maybe I am wrong but I really don't feel that 6 oz. is too much..I mean he keeps it down, he doesn't spit all of it up or anything. What would you do?
