Really hungry baby?

My son is a little over 2 weeks old, and was just eating 4 oz of formula every couple hours, and now he wants to eat 4 oz every hour. And when I feed him breastmilk, its as if I'm not feeding him anything at all. (Example: Last night, I pumped 2.5 oz of milk, and made 2 oz of formula, then fed him that. Not even 30 minutes later, he was hungry again, so I made another 2 oz. of formula and THEN he was full. Not really sure what to do...dont want to overfeed him, but dont want to feed him too little either.

Maybe increase the ounces to 5-6 per feeding and see how he does. But it is normal for them to feed so frequently especially if they are going through a growth spurt. He is letting you know he needs more, so give him more.
