  • I have a 6 week old and he eats between 4-6 oz every 3-4 hours. He only gets up once during the night and will only want 4 oz. he is very different then my 1st who always wanted to eat and never slept through the night.

  • Mine is also 6 wks old and she eats 4 oz every 4 hours and she doesnt vear from that much.. I have to wake her up in the night to feed her at least 1 bottle other wise she will sleep all the way through!

  • Sounds right to me. My son ate 4oz's for the first couple of weeks every two-three hours and then was at 6oz's by the time he was a month old. My daughter started at one oz and day by day progressed to 4oz's by the end of her first week. Then ate 4oz's for the first month. It all depends on the baby.
