My baby is 17weeks she usually has 4-6 8oz bottles a day, she recently had a virus 2 week ago and has been having two 8oz a day since, I'm a little worried is that enough for her?

Thank you i just got a little worried as to why it's taken longer the usual to recover from it the virus only lasted 3 days, I've cut her feeds down to 4oz every 3-4hrs that seems to be better for her I'm not worried about weight as she is 24lbs And only lost a couple of lbs while sick I just don't want her to leave her hungry, she's normally a good baby to feed.

Maybe give her smaller amounts more frequently and see how she does.

That is pretty normal for them to lose their appetite for a bit after recovering from a virus. As long as she is producing plenty of diapers. If you are concerned at all, speak with your pediatrician. My children have always been like this though. Even now when they are 4 and 8.
