  • What does your pediatrician say?
    Is she gaining weight?
    Does she have at least 8 wet diapers a day?
    Is her doctor concerned?
    Why are you asking?
    It depends on her body weight (capacity) and her metabolism. No answer is totally set in stone.

  • Talk to her doctor.

    My son was very small and the doctors had me feeding him 3 oz every two hours. I had to set an alarm and wake him up to feed him, every baby is different. If you are questions/concerns you should ask the child's doctor.

  • Babies need to suck. Have you tried a binky? As for amounts call a pediatrician or read the label on the formula. I have never used formula. You would know best if your baby is hungry or not.

  • not much. Their tummies are only about the size of their fist. It's not going to hold a whole lot right now.
