  • I think they start on like half an ounce for a day or two...then go to one...and work up from there. I think by one month they should be eating between 2-3ounces...although I primarily breastfed during that stage so I could be very off on that.

  • At a month, mine were taking about 6oz every 2-3 hours. But they were huge eaters.

    They were taking 2oz per feeding coming home from the hospital.

  • My son ate 3-4 ounces of formula in one feeding since the day he was born. At a month I think my son was drinking 5-6 oz's, but I can't be certain on that. When he was born he was drinking every 2-3 hours and by a month old it was maybe every 3 hours.
