My son was born on oct 1st. When we first brought him home, he was eating every two hours. As time went on, his eating habits became unpredictable. He will now eat about 6 -12 ounces every couple hours. If he takes a nap, he will want it a bit later. Sometimes he will even want it every hour, but only about 4 ounces. The doctor said as long as he isn't spitting it up then go ahead and feed him if thats what he wants. We don't try to give him food unless he is rooting around or sucking his fingers like a crazy little man. We have tried to put off some feedings but distracting him with play but he screams. Is it ok that he isn't set on a sechedule? At night he is. 3am he wants four ounces.
