  • Both my boys at 6oz every three hours at 3 months. Instead of upping formula we started cereal at 4 months.

  • If they are hungry, feed them. My son ate about that. And now at 16 weeks he is eating between 6 and 8 oz every 3.5 to 4.5 hours. Typically anyways. And he is 17 pounds, was only 7.1 when born. Don't worry, if there is a problem when you go to the pediatrician they will let you know.
