We do small meals and then have only organized big gaps for the night time. My baby girl does much better with about 3-4oz per feeding, very regularly. I stay home so that is practical for our schedule. You could try it if it is practical for yours.

does he have any other issues? like choking in bed, or crying alot? reflux sometimes causes babies to eat more often because as the milk goes down it soothes the throat...but the reflux returns on a full stomach, which can cause vomitting, and lots of pain, choking when they lie down, etc.

Only other thing i can think is how long has he been eating that often? if it's been less than a week, it could be a growth spurt. my daughter never took more than 5 oz at a time but one week a month she ate VERY OFTEN...including at night. then it would pass.
