Feeding on demand is the best way to make sure your child is getting the proper amount. I BF my son and when he would go through growth spurts, he would feed every 45 minutes. OFTEN! Regularly every hour to 1 1/2 hours. Totally normal. Since you are bottle feeding him, maybe add 1-2 ounces to what he is usually eating. That age usually feeds a couple of ounces at a time, maybe offer him 4. He is going to tell you when he is hungry. That is his job. Good luck.
