My son is 15weeks old. Hes just now eating about 5oz sometimes 6. But hes still wanting to eat like every 2-2 1/2hours! So that adds up a bunch! How much should he be eating, and how can i make him wait longer to eat???

  • You shouldn't make him wait. If he wants food give it to him. Will he take more at one feeding?

  • My daughter is the same age and eat the same amount, only she waits about 3-31/2 hours. I wouldnt worry. Just feed him when he is hungry, thats all you can do!

  • Feed on demand. HE knows how hungry he is and HE knows when he's full.

    Mine were taking 8oz every 2 hours before 15 weeks, so to me yours isn't eating that much! LOL
