How much do you feed??

Just a curious question... how old is your child and how many ounces do they drink... I was wondering because my son is about to be 10 months and I would say at 8 months he had just moved up to 6 ounce bottles, and sometimes doesnt finish those..... I remember one of my brothers friends had a 4 month old drinking 8 ounces and she would be done in under 5 minutes.....

  • my two month old drinks 4-5 ozs now && usually sucks it down but sometimes nurses the bottle.... every baby is different though... bottle fed babies will let you know if they are not getting enough...

  • My 3 month old baby drinks around 6 oz at every feeding and it takes him somewhere between 15-25 minutes depending on how hungry he is and how curious he is at the time of the feeding.

  • My daughter is 3.5 mos and has been drinking 6 ozs for about 3 weeks. She drains them in about 5-8 mins. Lately she doesn't even dstop to burp until she is done! I am thinking of increasing her bedtime bottle to 8 ozs soon...

    I have a couple of friends whose baby's did not take 6 oz till 6-7 mos. It all depends, every baby is a little different.
