Currently, my 4 month old drinks 5 oz. for each feeding (when I pump and she is fed by bottle)...
Does this sound normal?

According to La Leche League's Breastfeeding Answer Book, 3rd edition, on average most breastfed babies take between 2-4 ounces about 8-12 times per day, consuming about 28-32 ounces total per day. It is easy for baby to get too much too quickly with a bottle when they are used to the breast. 5oz may be just right for your baby, but it may be helpful to read a little about "paced bottle feeding".
