  • honestly i never went by what people said or others did. I fed my kids when they were wanting to eat. my daughter was EBF, but my son got formula at 7wks. he would have some formula before that but not alot. then he was formula only. I gave him 4oz at a time in the day about every4-5 hours. then at night I would give him 4 oz at about 11pm then at 5am 4 oz. if he slept thru his feeding i didnt wake him but he would eat more when he would wake.

  • I also fed my son whenever he wanted to eat. If you want to know what the "normal" amount is, join a website like they'll give you lots of great information on feedings, and lots of other great stuff.
