Aidan is 12 weeks and is eating 5oz every 3hrs I'm worried he's over eating. What are you babies eating habits?

Hey Andrea, our baby's are the same age and my baby drinks about 4-5oz every 3hrs on the dot. Sometimes every 2hrs. So your baby is fine. The doctor told me that around this time babies go through a growth spurt so they eat a little more.

My little one is 11 weeks and a normally feeding for him is 6oz. During the day he will have a bottle every 2.5 - 3 hours...But at night will sleep for 6-7 hours straight. In a day (24hour period) he generally consumes any where from 32-36 oz. He is healthy, happy and gaining the appropriate amount of weight.

Hi I wouldn't worry.... My baby is 11 weeks and she is having 5 to 6 bottles of 6oz a day. They just eat when their hungry and remember that your baby will be more active now so will need all that nourishment to keep them going ;0)
