  • Good lord woman....How many feeding questions are you going to ask this week :) Offer him 4oz. If he drinks all the the next time try 5. Go with every 3 hours. Or whenever he wants it :)

  • My first ate about every 1-2 hours.... no idea how much.
    My second ate every 3 hours like clockwork, until I started encouraging him to eat more often to help reduce spitup. Again, no idea how much.
