  • Breastfed? As often as baby wants.

    Can't be any help on formula feeding. Sorry!

  • For a month old baby my dr told me 2-4 ozs and about 6-8 bottles. I have a big baby. So you might be feeding the baby on average 3-5ozs depending on weight of baby etc but I think typically the baby is feeding 6-8 times in a 24 hour period.

  • As often as they want - regardless of whether breastfed or not.

    People need to stop getting caught up on the 'right' amount...it is entirely different for every baby - have some faith in your child - they know what they need.
