  • At that age my son was taking about 3 at a feeding. The feedings happened maybe every two to three hours. But this is just what was typical for my son.

  • most babies drink between 2 to 3 oz every 3 to 4 hrs You can google your question I actually found a page that let you calculate with the push of a buttom what your child should be consuming
