Please let me know how much formula your baby is taking? I know all babies are different, but am I overfeeding her by giving her back-to back bottles?

Well how much are in the bottles you are giving her? If she is only eating 2 ounces, and then you give her another 2 right away, then I would say no. It seems like my kids ate about 4 ounces or so at a time, every 3.5 - 4 hours at that age. But yes, like Michelle said, there could be something else bothering her that makes her fuss. Babies don't only cry when they're hungry :)

It should say on the tin.

I can't remember as my babies are older now.

ETA: Make sure she doesn't have gas. That can be misunderstood as hunger pains instead of gas pains.
