How often should my 4 month old son be eating? Hes eating 4 oz every 2-21/2 hrs. Does that sound right?

That sounds about right to me. My baby is 6mo old now ,but 2 months ago she was already up to 6.5 oz bottles,every 4 hrs and sleeping thru the nite.
My kid is a healthy heffer though.

Best rule of thumb for formula. Take his weight (in pounds) and multiply by 2.5 That's how many ounces he should be fed in a 24 hour period. I used this like crazy after I weaned to make sure I was always feeding my kiddos enough! :)

Also, if they are peeing with every feeding and gaining weight they're doing fine!

I have no idea on the volume, mine breastfed. But, the frequency sounds right. What's his doc say?
