  • I asked my ped the same...every baby is different but 4-6 onces is probably normal...although some babies like to eat less more often!!

  • When my daughter was 3 months she only ate 2 oz every two hours she did not eat that much and still today she is 11 1/2 months and she barely can finish 6 oz s she always wastes 1 to 2 ozs she is very tiny but I know she is eating healthy I just think she gets full fast.

  • It all depends on the babies appetite. My ped said no more than 32 oz a day, so a good average was 26-30. My son was eating 3.5 ounces evry 3 or hours when he was 3 months
