  • My daughter will be 12 weeks this Saturday! & she eats 4 oz. every 3-4 hours during the day. & 5 oz. every 4-5 hours at night! Lately she's seemed like she's still hungry during the day. So I think I'm going to start giving her 5 oz. bottles during the day too & maybe try 6 at night. But I'll probably just stay at 5 :)

  • My baby is 11 weeks old and she will eat 4-6 oz at a time. occasionally she will take 8oz. We usually make her a 4oz bottle and if she takes the whole bottle and still trying for more we make her another 2 oz. sometimes she may only take 1/2 an oz and other times she will finish it off. i think you have to find what works for you. I know that when she takes more ounces she goes longer between feedings

  • I'm with shannona9706 on that one, my son is 14 weeks (15 lbs or more!) I usually breastfeed and just wait till he's done, otherwise I pump everything into 2 and 4 oz bags. I always start with 4 usually not enough though, but sometimes it is. He's taken 8oz several times. Better to start with 4, then add 2 at a time to prevent waste.
