That young you need to let them eat whenever they want and how ever much they want. 2-4 ozs are normal, but if baby wants more then let them be fat and happy LOL

2-4 oz. every 3 hrs seems about right to me. It's so hard to remember. Oh yes the waking in the night to eat a bottle is perfectly normal.

here is a little chart...its just an average, I think my daughter was eating around 3 oz every 2-3 hours when she was that age but its hard to remember since I was breastfeeding & FF...anyways heres the chart...remember its just an average or "outline"

if your baby seems hungry after what you give her, you should definitely give her more. my son was a little pig...he was taking 4-5 oz every 2-3 hours. he got really pudgy really fast but evened out once he started crawling and walking.

I would just feed her when she seemed hungry.

I fed my daughter whenever she seemed hungry.

My son was a pig lol. He was eating 6-8 ozs at every 2-3 hours from birth to 3 months. Then he started eating 6-8 ozs every hour, so his ped said it was time to start solids.

If it seems like her appetite has suddenly increased, she's probably going through a growth spurt, which will cause her to eat more. I remember ds went through one right about then too. And yes, she should still be waking up during the night. Anyone who says their baby was sleeping through the night at that age just got damn lucky lol.

my son is 5 months & he still only takes 2-3 ounces every 3 hours except abouy 7 during the night while he's sleeping.  at 2 weeks it was 1 ounce every 2 hours, but he was early.
