  • My son drank 2-3 oz every 2hrs, but as long as they have regular wet diapers and bowel movements, that tends to mean they are getting enough.

  • around 32 ounces.. at least that is according to my baby book.. granted some days, he will drink as much as 40, or nurse on me for a long time.. then the next day it will be 28 ounces.. i nurse and pump and on the days he's extra hungry, i supplement him 2 ounces of formula. Baby411 book has a feeding schedule, how old, how much, etc..
