  • However many times it wants. It's still feed on demand at this age...until s/he's ready to move to regular meals and at meal times...but even then you let them eat how much they want....

  • well mine just turned 6 months last week and she's eating 6-7oz every 3-4 hours. so that's about 5-6 times a day, depending of if she sleeps through a feeding at night. i'm also starting her on cereal for dinner, i give her some cereal and a 6oz bottle. sometimes she eats the whole bottle, sometimes she doesn't, it depends on how much the cereal filled her up. i only give her a few spoonfuls though.

  • my son still nurses every 3 or so hours and he eats 2 - 3 tbsps of cereal mixed with fruit or veggies 2x a day. Turned 6 months yesterday.

  • He should be eating breakfast lunch and dinner with bottles in between.
