When do I feed my baby more?

At what age do you increase how much or how many ounces you feed your baby? My baby is a month old. I have been giving her 4oz. a feeding. When do I increase how much I give her at feedings? I am bottle feeding formula. Unable to breast feed due to the fact I didn't produce enough breast milk.

  • does it have a guide on the tub? if you think your baby is still hungry offer her an extra ounce or just up the mix from 4 - 5 ounces and see if she takes it.? some babies continue sucking the teat when the bottles dry and then chill out or others tat want more looked pissed off there no more coming? look at your baby girl, ask her in your own way, does she looked chilled and contented or hungry 4 more.

  • You feed more when they want more. There is no age, no weight to it...just whenever they want more.
