Baby Feeding Schedule

I just started to feed my baby 6 0z. at a time. She's almost three months old and guzzles it down. I was wondering what an appropriate time was between each bottle?

  • Whenever she wants one. 6oz seems like a lot to me, I'd think it would satisfy her for 1 1/2 hours at least. But hey if the baby's hungry feed her.

  • Feed her when she is hugry. Could be ever 2 to 4 hours LOL She may eat more at some feedings and less at others. But I think at 3 months we tried to get our baby to hold off for 3 hours, but some times if they are being active and using up a lot of energy, they are going to be hungry. I tell my husband, how would you like it if I told you you couldn't eat for another hour when you were starving? LOL then he stops arguing with me LOL

  • An appropriate time would be when she wants more.
