how much formula are you suppose to give a 3 month old baby?

someone told me they only give their baby like 3 oz. of formula at a time. probably like every 2 hours. that just don't seem like enough to me, is it not time to start feedin her how ever much she wants??

  • I always made a 4 oz bottle.. if she wanted more.. then i'd make more. She is the only one who know's how much she need's... Let her decide.
