  • Are you bottle feeding or breast feeding?

  • every 2-4 hours depends on how hungry the baby is and if you are breast or formula feeding. Babies eat more often on the breast.

  • They should be fed on demand, but probably won't eat much due to a tiny stomach that doesn't hold a whole lot right now.

  • Mine ate 2 oz every 2 hours until he was about a month and a half. Hes three months now and eats 4 oz about every 3 hours.
