My baby is eating 6 ozs every 3 to 4 hours and if he dont have it he will scream bloodly mudred.
How old is he?
Have you tried smaller amounts more often? Your signature says he's 3 months? I have never bottle fed, but my baby eats every 2-4 hours (she was 3 months old last week) and then wakes up once during the night to nurse.
Quoting xredstarsx:4 hours is actually a long time to go in the day time. I would do 4 oz bottles more often and then 6 right before bed.
I was thinking something like this too...
Babies like to eat frequently.
my son is 2 months he eats 8 oz ever 2 to 3 hours during the day and at night his last bottle is at 8- 9pm and he doesn't wake up until 5 am sometimes he sleeps though the night.
I think you little one is having a growth spurt.
Mine is 14 weeks and eats 6-7 ounces every 3 hours. She also sleeps 12 hours at night. She eats 5 times a day. The doctor thought that was excessive and told us to put rice cereal in her bottle. Yeah we tried it. Made no difference.
