  • If she's taking it and still hungry after, give her more. If she takes it and pukes, give her less.

    If she's happy after a feeding and isn't spitting a ton up, you're good.

  • 4 oz should be fine... if she is eating every 3-4 hours I would stick with it... if she starts wanting to eat every 2 hours or less on a regular basis you could probably add another oz.

  • When your child asks for more. Obviously she isn't going to verbally say it, but when she finishes a bottle and still acts as though she's hungry. When an infant is still rooting for food when the bottle is finished, then that's a sign that they're still hungry. In that case you just add another ounce and see if that satisfies her.
