Yes, it's too much. That tummy is TINY. Three ounces is your target. And it's a forever number.

3 oz every 2.5-3 hours
Tell her to go to kellymom.com. There is ton of info about bottle feeding breastmilk.

If she keeps going like this, she isn't going to be able to keep up with the bottles.

And the baby will develop a bottle preference!
