In a parents mag that babies should have 8 feeding a day bottle/breast...My question is how many oz should a 4 month old be drinking?

Brynn drinks 4 8 oz bottles so 32 oz a day...basically 8 oz every 4 hrs and she eats rice cereal once a day....she was up to 4 oz by 2weeks and 6 oz by 6 weeks old...per dr ...she doent wake at night to eat at all...is she getting enough

Yep, she's getting plenty.  They suggest around 28oz and up a day.

she was 13 pounds at 2 months and I think atleast 15 pounds now..so then 32 would be right?

My daughter is 8 months and probably about 15lbs or at least almost.  She's a preemie, so fixed, she'd be 6 months.  She's not even on the chart for her age and weight, so I wouldn't worry about it so much.  She's eating fine and she definitely doesn't look like she's starving.....LOL.  You're doing a great job.

wow, that is double what my 4 month old gets.  as long as they are growing at a healthy rate you are good.  pediatrician will tell you at a well baby visit if you need to feed more, but i think you are doing good!

All the babies grow and eat at different rates.  My boys were like yours, the first one is tall and skinny and my second is short and chunky.  My third (our daughter) is looking to be a little of both...lol.
