My baby girl is almost exclusively on formula. We have been trying with cereals but she doesn't end up getting any, long story.
Anyway, at this point, its just formula. She eats 4 oz bottles every 3 hrs. She is gaining appropriate weight according to her doc, but I think otherwise. Because she sleeps 12-13 hrs per night, she ends up eating only 20 oz per day. I dont think this is enough. She will eat whatever I give her, so I am scared to try adding too much... Tonight instead of giving her 4 oz before bed, I gave her 7 (and she would have kept eating). She doesn't act overly hungry, but sometimes she acts hungry when she is done eating. How much should a 5 month old be eating, excluding cereal?
Please no breastfeeding comments. They are not helpful to me.
