Hungry hungry baby

My 1 month old drinks 4 oz every 2 hours. I'm not sure if I'm feeding her too much but she is hungry all the time. Plus she won't sleep longer than 5 hours once a day.

My baby is a big eater too. She is 11 weeks old and routinely eats about 7 oz every 3 - 4 hours. I've finally been able to pin point how much formula will satisfy her. I was worried about it at first, but my doctor told me it's fine. If a baby is emptying a bottle, she's hungry, so feed her more. She empties her bottle every time, but she doesn't seem to want more after. If she does, then I give it to her.

Sounds perfectly normal. A 5 hour stretch of sleep for a 1 month infant is great! Most babies that age are waking every 1-4 hours to eat.

I dont know if this would be helpful but when mine was little she was a big eater and my mom told me babies wont eat more than needed. Every child is different and they all have different appetites also. I hope this helped.

BTW, feeding should be on demand, so if she is asking for it, give it to her. If 4 oz is not enough, try 5. Or feed her more frequently. When they go through growth spurts, they tend to eat a lot in in sitting, and feed more frequently.

Nope. Sounds about right as far as the feeding goes. As far as nap time, that will continuously change.
