My 4 week old (today) eats almost constantly. He was breast and formula fed up until this past Friday but due to low supply (I had none for my first son) I decided to go with just bottle. He eats 4 oz bottles every 1-1/2 to 2 hours. But in between feedings he cries for more. He could easily eat 6 oz at one feeding or a 4 oz every hour if I let him but I feel like that's too much. He doesn't spit up excessively. Just a little at some feedings. Idk what to do or why he wants to eat so much for such a little guy.

Some babies eat more than others. If he isn't spitting up excessively, chances are, he isn't actually over eating.
