How many ounces??

Would you feed your 3 1/2 month old before bedtime? Would you give more than what he normally drinks in a feeding?

  • I would give what he wants... if he usually takes 4 during the day you could always try an extra ounce or two but he may not take it. I wouldn't over feed though because you can cause a tummy ache and then have a crabby baby!

  • 6 - 8. My little girl is a piggy and she went from the 6 oz bottle to the 8 oz bottle around 4 months.

  • I'm assuming formula? I have no idea, lol. If it was BM I could give you more info.

  • My guys were all taking 8oz every 2-3 hours at that time. I just gave them what they normally took. It's not like you can force it down their throats or anything...

  • My 11 wker eats the same most of the time, which is 6 oz.. Sometimes she does want more. Sometimes 4 oz more! Give your baby as much as she wants. They do not typically over-eat.
