  • the formula guidelines suggest 20-30oz. of formula during a 24hr period. With 5-6 feedings a day, around 4-5 oz. each feeding. That is average, but every baby is different. Baby's sucking reflex is more prominent when they are tired, that is why she is not fussing at night. While she is awake, maybe she is teething or does not like the formula? You could try another brand or just wait to feed her closer to her nap times instead of when she wakes up.
