if you formula feed...

How much is your baby taking at a time? And how much in total? My daughter will be 3 months old in a week and it seems like she's always hungry... she won't take a pacifier and I just want to make sure she's not getting too much.

  • By that age they should be taking in a quart (32 oz), maybe a little more. Mine were all around 36-42 oz - 6-7 6 oz bottles a day.

  • My 6 month old only takes 3 8 ounce bottles a day. That's it. But I would not go by him, lol. He sleeps a lot.

  • At that age, she is growing quickly. As long as she is hungry, give it to her and don't worry about giving too much. I would more worry about not giving enough.
