Feeding my baby too little?!

After reading the "feeding my baby too much" conversation I now feel like I am feeding her too little. She is 3 months and eats about 4 oz every 2 hours, goes to sleep at 9 pm and wakes up between 2 and 3 for another 4 oz and then wakes up again at 5 or 6 eats 4 more and usually sleeps until 8 or 9. She doesn't always drain the whole 4 oz it's about 60% of the time though. Should I be feeding her more? If so how much?

I feed my daughter when she is hungry and what she wants to eat. No more, no less. She is steadily growing and gaining weight. My pediatrician said this is fine. I wouldn't worry too much unless she isn't growing like she should. Each baby is different and grows at their own rate. If you are really concerned talk to your baby's pediatrician. :0)

Well my daughter is 3 months, 3 weeks, and she eats 6 oz evvery 4 hours...so with you feeing her 4 oz every 2 hours, shes actually getting more then my daughter..so you actually arent under feeding her, but, if you can stretch out her feeding times it would be a lot easier for you in a lot of ways..try giving her more ounces in the bottle, and keep doing that and see how long she can last till the next one....3-4 hours would be good

I would feed her more especially at her last feeding of the night.  You might get a couple more hours of sleep out of her.  I would up it to 6 oz at least one bottle a day.
