  • I wish i could tell you, my daughter is 3 weeks and can eat as much as 7 oz in a feeding, but is not consistant with how many hours go between feedings, the nurse at our pedi office said to just feed her when she is hungry, if she isn't spitting up then i am doing the right thing...so i can't help, good luck!

  • I think that's about right, my 2 month old has about 3-4 ounces every 2-3 hours. Plus anika is right, if she isn't spitting back up or seems to have any tummy trouble, then everythings okay :)

  • my 2 month old eats 3 to 4 ounces every 3 to 4 hours...she tends to eat a little more right before she goes to sleep for the night though. but every day is different.
