  • I also think it depends on the child. When my now 6mth old was 4mths she also ate every 2-3(but usually 2) 6oz. But she would however sleep from 9:30p- 8am. I thought it was a crazy amount but the Dr said all you can do is feed on demand but to put some rice in her bottle. Which I had always heard not to do. But thats why I love my Peditr. He tells you what works. Now however we just took her for her 6 month check and she weighs 19.8lbs. She is in the 97th percentile. He said she is just a healthly happy baby

  • Honestly don't compare your child to any other children. you should be feeding on demand when your baby is hungry feed her. They go through a growth spurt around 4 months so eating may change for awhile usually lasts about a week. Even though they are growing their tummys are still the same size so during growth spurts they get hungry more often and will sometimes wake during the night when they were sleeping through previously.
