  • My DD would drink about 3 to 4 ounces every 2-3 hours. it varied.. sometimes she would only drink 2 oz. They consume more when they have a growth spurt! it seemed like she was always hungry when that was happening lol. and before i knew it she grew out of her clothes and went up a size in diapers!
    By 6 months she was drinking 4 6-7 oz bottles are day. and now at 10 months drinks 3 8oz bottles per day. Go with your gut. There is no set amount, as long as the baby has frequent wet/soiled diapers and is gaining weight then everything is fine! good luck mama!!

  • baby is 3 months .. drinking 6-8 oz every 4-5 hours. her feeding's are a little complicating. she eats 8oz with a little cereal around 8am. then every 4-5 hours after that it's 6oz with cereal until about 8 or 9, sometimes 10pm, then she will take 6oz of milk with cereal and sleep until 8 or 9am. in between her second and third feeding she takes 4oz of pedialyte.
    before we started cereal in her bottles, she was taking over 10oz every 3-4 hours. the milk was not filling her up so we had to give her something else.
