  • My son took a LONG time to eat more than 2 oz per feeding. As long as he seems to be getting full and gaining fine, I wouldn't worry about the number part of it - or listen to people who say "my child was/is eating 3-4 times your son " my SIL did that to me ALL the time.

  • If he seems happy and content and is gaining weight then I wouldn't worry about it all. All babies are different and do their own thing.
