How many ounces should my 3 month old daughter be eating at a time? Right now she is at 5 ounces.

This was my biggest question as a new mom as well. It sounds like your daughter is eating a "norm" amount. In my research I found most babies 3 - 4 months old drink about 4 - 6 ounces about 6 times a day. So the "norm" total amount for a 24 hour period is between 12 - 24 ounces up to 36 - 40 ounces.

I recently started a parenting web site, to help answer questions like this. Please refer to this link: for more information. Also, please don't hesitate to contact your doctor for more information.

Good luck!
