how much does your baby eat?

Dd just started sleeping through the night, but when she wakes up, she eats herself sick! How much do your little one's eat in the morning. I want her to get full, but not to the point of spitting up all over the place. She eats 5oz at a time during the day, for reference.
She's 3 mo

We breastfeed. But good luck.

My dd is breastfed so I don't know the amount in volume. She was nursing every 3 hours at that age.

My son is about 5 or 6 weeks old and he doesn't sleep through the night yet but he does sleep for about 6-7 hours at night and when he wakes up he eats the normal amount 3-4 ounces.

My daughter is 10.5 months. She eats 6 oz every 3-4 hours. At 3 months she was eating 4 oz every 3 hours.

I'm so glad mine sleeps throughout the night I couldn't imagine waking up every 3 hours for 10 months

She sleeps through the night. That's throughout the day before bedtime.

Idk he is breastfed. Hubby did watch him while I napped the other day and tried feeding him a bottle of pumped milk (he's 4 months and it's only the second time he's had one). Baby ate less than an ounce.

I worked with my older two and they never took more than about 3 oz at a time.

5 hours is through the night, so he is sleeping through. :)

When I measured, my daughter would take 3.5 at most... Those were the early morning sessions.

When she weaned after a year we never offered more than 4 oz in a sitting.

Do you have super slow nipples? Have you read about pace feeding?

At 3 mo my DD was only drinking 1 1/2 oz every.6 hours or so.

She slept through the night since 7 days old. So 1 1/2 oz after a 7pm to 7am sleep.
