as the PP said 1.5 to 2.5 oz per pound per day. More during a growth spurt. Also keep in mind they may not take the same amount of formula at each feeding. what they skimp at one meal they will make up at another.
Thank You to everyone who posted, it has really helped. My husband and I went ahead and bumped up his formula oz. to 6 ounces for the first four bottles then 5 ounces for the last two bottles putting him at 34 ounces per day. Last ped visit he was 15.6 pounds and I think he is about 16 pounds now.
