  • I know its been a while but at that age mine use to eat about that much. Recently I've been babysittin for this one woman. Her son is 5 months old and can already eat 10 oz in one sitting. She told me the other day she had a dr appt for him and the dr said he was overweight. I never thought that could be possible.

  • Gosh I wish my 4 month old son had a set schedule lol. :)
    But I strictly breastfeed so its hard for me to tell but he eats every 2 hours or so.

  • I breastfeed my daughter every 3 hours during the day (she sleeps 9-10 hours/night), but when I supplement with a bottle it's a 4 oz and she seems satisfied so I'm assuming that's about what she's getting from me.

  • My youngest is 4 months and he's now taking 6oz every feeding and eats ever 2-3 hours during the day. He sleeps through the night (usually).
