  • Mine took 8oz every 2 hours. They were not average.

    Don't worry about the averages. Just feed on demand. There really is no such thing as an "average" baby.

  • I would say about 4-6 oz every 2-4 hours.
    I had by kiddos on a schedule of 4oz every 4 hours, and then it increased over the weeks..

  • Every baby is different. My daughter was taking 5oz every 2 hours sometimes 3 hours.

  • I discovered there is no "average". My son drank between 2 and 4 oz, with the oz an hour thing happening. At how 3 weeks, it got to the point about 4 oz would last 30 min and he ate constantly.
