My son is 4 months 1 week and 4 days old he just the other day started eating every half hour to a hour I was worried about over feeding him but he hasn't thrown up or anything. Is this normal he is eating do often?

Yeah, I think it's a growth spurt. Just keep doing that and make sure you burp him often is what I did. I think when he was that age I was feeding him 6oz and told my pedi at our appointment and he said no way, pace feed him he shouldn't that much. you're putting fresh milk on top of old milk that wasn't digested yet, which can him full and uncomfortable.

Thanks:) we try the binkie for a bit but then he just spits it out and cries for milk I do try to only fit him his normal 3 ozs then the next time 2 but he still wakes up wanting more after a hour

He may be going through a growth spurt. My little man did that too. But I was told to fix 2 oz at a time and burp often, to see if he is full before he knows it. Also try a binkie if you do that. It may be he wants to suckle
