  • Yes, babies eat more when they are growing.

  • I think its normal. i have a 3wk old daughter too, and she used to drink 4oz too, but now is on 3oz..is she eating 2oz every 2 hrs. if so, its normal. but if she is eating 2 oz every 3+ hours, i would ask my doc. GL

  • My son is almost 6 weeks old and is back to eating anywhere between 2 and 4oz bottles. The other night he woke up twice and only took 2oz each time and fell right back to sleep. We only make 2oz bottles so we don't waste any.
