i have been told to feed on demand, and sometimes she takes 3 oz every 3 to 4 hours, or 1 1/2 every 1 to 2 hours, especially if someone else feeds her, she sometimes spits up and sometimes vomits a bit more but still sucks fingers and cries to have more, if she does vomit bout 5 to 10 mls and asks for more should i keep going,?i am bottle feeding and trying to also follow instuctions on carton.

When she does the 1 1/2 every 1-2 hrs is she more likely to spit up? She is still pretty little yet that I would stick to the feed on demand, but one thing I noticed with my youngest is that her hunger cry and ques were the same for tired. So I would say if she is more likely to be spitting up after those short periods of time try seeing if she is tired first before trying to feed. Some babies also want to suck more then other babies...they are not always hungry when they want to suck more just want to suck. If you are ok with pacifiers I would try that and see if that settles her.
