Does my 3 month old eat enough?

Ok.. so I am probably just thinking this but here it goes... My daughter is 3 months old and eats 8oz every 4-5 hours but approximately eat 4-5 times a day. Shes gaining a good amount of weight at each check up and seems to be fine with what im doing. Is this okay, or should I be doing something different?

  • feed on demand thats what I have always been told. If she isnt throwing it back up your doing just fine

  • you seem to be doing a fine job at what your doing. If there was a problem Im sure her doctor would have said somethign to you about it ..

  • My son is 3 1/2 months old and eats 5 to 6 oz about 6 times a day. I would say 8 oz is a little much at this age per feeding, but every baby is different.
