How many ounces should 3 mo old babies eat?

My little one has slept 6 hours since she was born and now she is 3 months and sleep 8-10 hour a night. As long as they are gaining weight at all times it is fine. There is no need to wake your baby as long as they are gaining weight at a good pace. That is just what our dr. says, and we should be lucky that our kid is sleeping so well. Our little one is still gaining on average 1 oz a day.
Like the other posters said. Also, remember that your baby's stomach is only about the size of his fist so he won't take much at any one time. That's why babies don't sleep 8-10 hours at a stretch (nor should they) until they are 2. If you are formula feeding (or expressing breastmilk), your baby probably won't take more than 3 ounces at a sitting. If he's hungry, feed more often; during a growth spurt, he can feed as often as every 30 minutes.
