  • As much as he wants.

    Mine were taking 8oz every 2 hours at that age.

  • My daughter has been eating 7-8 oz every 2-4 hours since she was 5 weeks. As long as your baby gets as much as he wants and your pediatrician doesn't seem concerned, don't make yourself concerned, either =)

  • Typically it's 2-2.5 oz for each pound of babies weight a day.
