  • If that's what she wants, then give it to her. Sounds right to me.

  • no not at all if that is what she wants then give it to her.. all babies are different but that does sound about right to me. my little one is 11 weeks now, but at 7 weeks she was drinking about 4-5 oz every couple hours.

  • That's 32oz a day, exactly what my kids' doctors told me they needed.

  • Not at all! Thats actually what the Pediatrician recommended to me!

  • Yeah, sounds good...I think it's at the high end of what they should be getting, no? Still, it's fine though - if your baby is spitting it up often, you could try to reduce by a couple ounces, I think. ? Otherwise, you're good!
