How many ounces of formula should my 3 month old be eating

Oh my goodness!!! My 15lb two month old is drinking 4 to 5 ounces. I thought this was a lot for him. What I say is give to her if she wants it. It sounds like she is hungry, but at least the milk is holding her every couple of hours. Mines eat every hour and a half.

My 3 mo old has been taking 8oz every 4hrs for a month now. She is a big eater. She has slept through the night since she was 7wks old. She goes to bed around 10 and I wake her at 6:30 so I can get to work. She also eats 5 times a day. She gets a cereal bottle in the morning and then every other bottle and at her 10 feeding she gets Enfamil Restful. It is a wonderful product for babies that just cant stay full.

It is whatever your child is hunger for, you'll know. My daughter is 11 weeks and she is eating 5.5 ozs every 3.5- 4 hours. Her last feeding is at 10, and I have to wake her up at 7:30 to eat.( to get her older brother to school) So 5 bottles. So 27.5 ozs,

my son was in the hospital for surgery and an infant nutritionist came and spoke to us. Our son had to slowly introduce feedings again. Anyway, she mentioned that around 2months he should be eating about 4oz each feeding and at 3months it should be around 5oz. My son eats every 3 hours and that was normal for his age.

my son is 10 wks an he eats 7 to 8 oz every 3 hours!! i think its a lil crazy because my nephew is 8 wks and only eats 4 oz. But when i was pregnant i had about 5 ultrasounds at the childrens hospital and they told me that he would have a big stomach.

Thanks for all the information everyone! Im a new mom.. and I just wanted to make sure that it was normal for her. She sleeps through that night and shes staying up a little bit longer, but still takes about 3 or so naps. She sleeps until shes hungry again.
