  • Sounds like he is cluster feeding during the day so that he sleeps more at night. That's how my son is too. He's two months old as well. Only he is breast fed.

  • My baby girl is the same way she is two months and eats 5 oz every two to three hours. I asked the doctor about it and said its normal excpecially if you have a very long baby. My baby is 24 inches

  • It may be a growth spurt, is this how he always eats? Does he want more when you stop feeding him?
