  • It really depends on the baby...but 200-220 ml at least 4 times a day would be fine.

  • On average? About 25 oz over a 24 hour period. During a growth spurt, they will typically need more.

  • great site!

    Average intake by age: birth to two months: 2-5 ounces per feeding

    two to four months: 4-6 ounces per feeding

    four to six months: 5-7 ounces per feeding

    Average intake by weight: The average baby who isn’t eating anything but milk needs about two and a half ounces per pound of weight. Some babies need more, some need less in order to gain weight adequately. A ten-pound baby needs about 25 ounces in twenty-four hours (round up an ounce or two to be on the safe side – say 27 ounces) which means that if he eats eight times in 24 hours, he would need a little over three ounces at each feeding. You’ll get a feel for how much he will eat at each feeding as he begins to take bottles
