  • My son is 6 weeks old and drinks 4-6 oz every 2-4 hours. Sometimes mine acts hungry when he is gassy or is getting ready to get the hiccups. have you tried gas drops or gripe water. I like the gripe water better.

  • My DS dr said you can up the oz given by 1/2 at each feeding to see how they react. At that age my son was eating about 4oz every 3 to 4 oz. He is now 4 months and eating about 6 oz every 4 to 5 hrs.
