  • if that's how much she wants to eat there is no stopping her. she probably is going through a growth spurt.

  • My doctor told me that my son would eat how much he wanted/needed. Baby's are super smart as to this stuff. It is instinct. My brother and his wife try to control how much their son eats and he is super unhappy because of it. Let your baby choose and you will all be happier for it. :)

  • Every baby is different, my son is 4 months old and is taking 6 oz bottle and 2tsp of cereal in the am and the same in the pm, with just 6oz bottles in between every 3 hrs. and he is perfectly healthy, weighs 17 lbs.
