  • Only if he wants to eat more then that!! When my kids were finishing their whole bottle I usually put about an oz more in then my child would drink in the next on... to make sure they were getting enough. ;o)

  • Depends on the kid some just go loner when they sleep but still eat the same amount. i would try the extra oz and see how it goes.

  • You feed him what he will eat. If he eats the 3oz and still acts hungry, offer him more.

  • Excuse me, but you other questions says he throws up a 3 oz bottle already. Follow the numerous advice you been given more than once. Slow down the feed, burp, feed. If baby is happy and satisfied then enough is given at the feed. Watch for hunger cues. Your baby will let you know.

  • I am an on demand feeder! All my kids are healthy weight! I recommend feeding when he/she wants too!

  • I never wake my baby to eat. He is 3 weeks old and will sleep for 6 hour stretches sometimes. He's doing just fine.
