  • depends on the baby... My gurl never drank more than a 4oz bottle til she was walking. she drank about 3 oz til she was about 5 mon. n thats with no food at all, no cereal, or baby food. so u can never say. as long as the babu is healthy, who cares what stats say.

  • Every child is different so you need to use your descretion here. Some kids will refuse to have any more when they are full even at that age. so play around it and see. Good luck):

  • Every baby is different you can't assume that your baby will be like others. My son ate a 6oz bottle every 4hours at 3 months now being almost 7 months he only eats 4oz but also has 3 solid food meals a day. I can't stress enough how different every baby is.

  • As many as s/he wants.

    Mine were taking an average of 45-50oz per day.

  • When my DS was three months he was drinking 4 ounces every 3-4 hours but quickly went to a 6 oz.

  • my baby started eating 6 to 7 onces when he came straight out of me, but he strtedspitting up everytime he burped he was eating way too much the dr told me to just give him 4 onces and so i did and he was fine, he is now 4 months and still loves to eat about onces but he still spits up so i keep it at about 5 to 6 onces and he does fine. i have a porkabelly. lol =) some babies will eat too much knowing they are full but want to keep sucking bc its a natural instinct to them just give him or her 4 to 5 onces and then stick a pacifier in there mouth. thats what my dr told me. hope this helps.=)
